Subject[4/7] vfs: __read_cache_page should use gfp argument rather than GFP_KERNEL
2.6.32-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Dave Kleikamp <dave.kleikamp@oracle.com>

commit e6f67b8c05f5e129e126f4409ddac6f25f58ffcb upstream.

lockdep reports a deadlock in jfs because a special inode's rw semaphore
is taken recursively. The mapping's gfp mask is GFP_NOFS, but is not
used when __read_cache_page() calls add_to_page_cache_lru().
