Subject: [PATCH] net/packet: simply allocations in alloc_one_pg_vec_page

Currently the initial allocation for pg_vec buffers are done through
page allocator with __GFP_NORETRY, the first fallbacks is vzalloc and
the second fallback is page allocator without __GFP_NORETRY.

First, there is no need to do vzalloc if the order is 0 and second the
vzalloc internally use GFP_KERNEL for each individual page allocation
and thus there is no need to have any fallback after vzalloc.
