Subject[PATCH][RESEND] tcp: replace hard coded GFP_KERNEL with sk_allocation
This fixed a lockdep warning which appeared when doing stress
memory tests over NFS:

inconsistent {RECLAIM_FS-ON-W} -> {IN-RECLAIM_FS-W} usage.

page reclaim => nfs_writepage => tcp_sendmsg => lock sk_lock

mount_root => nfs_root_data => tcp_close => lock sk_lock =>
tcp_send_fin => alloc_skb_fclone => page reclaim

David raised a concern that if the allocation fails in tcp_send_fin(), and it's
GFP_ATOMIC, we are going to yield() (which sleeps) and loop endlessly waiting
for the allocation to succeed.

But fact is, the original GFP_KERNEL also sleeps. GFP_ATOMIC+yield() looks
weird, but it is no worse the implicit sleep inside GFP_KERNEL. Both could
loop endlessly under memory pressure.
