Subject[PATCH 5.0 079/137] dmaengine: bcm2835: Avoid GFP_KERNEL in device_prep_slave_sg
Date
[ Upstream commit f147384774a7b24dda4783a3dcd61af272757ea8 ]

The commit af19b7ce76ba ("mmc: bcm2835: Avoid possible races on
data requests") introduces a possible circular locking dependency,
which is triggered by swapping to the sdhost interface.

So instead of reintroduce the race condition again, we could also
avoid this situation by using GFP_NOWAIT for the allocation of the
DMA buffer descriptors.
