fs/seq_file: fallback to vmalloc allocation

There are a couple of seq_files which use the single_open() interface.
This interface requires that the whole output must fit into a single
buffer.

E.g.  for /proc/stat allocation failures have been observed because an
order-4 memory allocation failed due to memory fragmentation.  In such
situations reading /proc/stat is not possible anymore.

Therefore change the seq_file code to fallback to vmalloc allocations
which will usually result in a couple of order-0 allocations and hence
also work if memory is fragmented.

For reference a call trace where reading from /proc/stat failed:

  sadc: page allocation failure: order:4, mode:0x1040d0
