Subject[PATCH 09/10] Uml: use GFP_ATOMIC for allocations under spinlocks.
Date
From: Paolo 'Blaisorblade' Giarrusso <blaisorblade@yahoo.it>

setup_initial_poll is only called with sigio_lock() held, so use appropriate
allocation.

Also, parse_chan() can also be called when holding a spinlock (see line_open()
-> parse_chan_pair()).

I have sporadical problems (spinlock taken twice, with spinlock debugging on
UP) which could be caused by a sequence like "take spinlock, alloc and go to
sleep, take again the spinlock in the other thread".
