Attempt to allocate a new object instead of crashing KVM (and likely the
kernel) if a memory cache is unexpectedly empty.  Use GFP_ATOMIC for the
allocation as the caches are used while holding mmu_lock.  The immediate
BUG_ON() makes the code unnecessarily explosive and led to confusing
minimums being used in the past, e.g. allocating 4 objects where 1 would
suffice.
