Subject[31/89] USB: Dont use GFP_KERNEL while we cannot reset a storage device
2.6.31-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Oliver Neukum <oliver@neukum.org>

commit acbe2febe71abb2360b008e9ab3ee5c44169f78c upstream.

Memory allocations with GFP_KERNEL can cause IO to a storage
device which can fail resulting in a need to reset the device.
Therefore GFP_KERNEL cannot be safely used between usb_lock_device()
and usb_unlock_device(). Replace by GFP_NOIO.
