Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.14 027/110] mac80211_hwsim: Fix a possible sleep-in-atomic bug in hwsim_get_radio_nl
Date
From: Jia-Ju Bai <baijiaju1990@163.com>

[ Upstream commit 162bd5e5fd921785077b5862d8f2ffabe2fe11e5 ]

The driver may sleep under a spinlock.
The function call path is:
hwsim_get_radio_nl (acquire the spinlock)
nlmsg_new(GFP_KERNEL) --> may sleep

To fix it, GFP_KERNEL is replaced with GFP_ATOMIC.

This bug is found by my static analysis tool(DSAC) and checked by my code review.
