Subject[PATCH for 4.9 07/39] qed: Fix possible system hang in the dcbnl-getdcbx() path.
Date
From: "sudarsana.kalluru@cavium.com" <sudarsana.kalluru@cavium.com>

[ Upstream commit 62289ba27558553871fd047baadaaeda886c6a63 ]

qed_dcbnl_get_dcbx() API uses kmalloc in GFT_KERNEL mode. The API gets
invoked in the interrupt context by qed_dcbnl_getdcbx callback. Need
to invoke this kmalloc in atomic mode.
