SubjectACPI sleeping whilst atomic warnings on resume.
This has been broken for months.  On resume, we call acpi_pci_link_set()
with interrupts off, so we get a warning when we try to do a kmalloc
of non atomic memory. The actual allocation is just 2 long's
(plus extra byte for some reason I can't fathom), so a simple conversion
to GFP_ATOMIC is probably the safest way to fix this.

The error looks like this..

Debug: sleeping function called from invalid context at mm/slab.c:2486
