[PATCH] __vmalloc with GFP_ATOMIC causes 'sleeping from invalid context'

If __vmalloc is called to allocate memory with GFP_ATOMIC in atomic
context, the chain of calls results in __get_vm_area_node allocating memory
for vm_struct with GFP_KERNEL, causing the 'sleeping from invalid context'
warning.  This patch fixes it by passing the gfp flags along so
__get_vm_area_node allocates memory for vm_struct with the same flags.
