Subject[12/17] Virtual Compound page allocation from interrupt context.
In an interrupt context we cannot wait for the vmlist_lock in
__get_vm_area_node(). So use a trylock instead. If the trylock fails
then the atomic allocation will fail and subsequently be retried.

This only works because the flush_cache_vunmap in use for
allocation is never performing any IPIs in contrast to flush_tlb_...
in use for freeing.
