Subject: [PATCH net] NFC: nci: fix sleep in atomic context bugs caused by nci_skb_alloc

There are sleep in atomic context bugs when the request to secure
element of st-nci is timeout. The root cause is that nci_skb_alloc
with GFP_KERNEL parameter is called in st_nci_se_wt_timeout which is
a timer handler. The call paths that could trigger bugs are shown below:

    (interrupt context 1)
st_nci_se_wt_timeout
  nci_hci_send_event
    nci_hci_send_data
      nci_skb_alloc(..., GFP_KERNEL) //may sleep

   (interrupt context 2)
st_nci_se_wt_timeout
  nci_hci_send_event
    nci_hci_send_data
      nci_send_data
        nci_queue_tx_data_frags
          nci_skb_alloc(..., GFP_KERNEL) //may sleep

This patch changes allocation mode of nci_skb_alloc from GFP_KERNEL to
GFP_ATOMIC in order to prevent atomic context sleeping. The GFP_ATOMIC
flag makes memory allocation operation could be used in atomic context.

Fixes: 6a2968aaf50c ("NFC: basic NCI protocol implementation ")
Fixes: 11f54f228643 ("NFC: nci: Add HCI over NCI protocol support")
