Subject[PATCH 4.4-only] netlink: Allow direct reclaim for fallback allocation
Date
The backport of d35c99ff77ec ("netlink: do not enter direct reclaim from
netlink_dump()") to the 4.4 branch (first in 4.4.32) mistakenly removed
direct claim from the initial large allocation and the fallback
allocation which means that allocations can spuriously fail.
Fix the issue by adding back the direct reclaim flag to the fallback
allocation.

Fixes: 6d123f1d396b ("netlink: do not enter direct reclaim from netlink_dump()")
