fragement -> fragment?

instroduce -> introduce?

The nlmsg_new() has the below parameters, there is no gfp flags for
vnlmsg_new() and always assuming GFP_KERNEL?

 * @payload: size of the message payload
 * @flags: the type of memory to allocate.

There are a lot of callers for nlmsg_new(), I am wondering how many
of existing nlmsg_new() caller can change to use vnlmsg_new().
