Pankaj Raghav reported that when filesystem block size is larger
than page size, the xattr code can use kmalloc() for high order
allocations. This triggers a useless warning in the allocator as it
is a __GFP_NOFAIL allocation here:

static inline
struct page *rmqueue(struct zone *preferred_zone,
                        struct zone *zone, unsigned int order,
                        gfp_t gfp_flags, unsigned int alloc_flags,
                        int migratetype)
{
        struct page *page;

        /*
         * We most definitely don't want callers attempting to
         * allocate greater than order-1 page units with __GFP_NOFAIL.
         */
>>>>    WARN_ON_ONCE((gfp_flags & __GFP_NOFAIL) && (order > 1));
...

Fix this by changing all these call sites to use kvmalloc(), which
will strip the NOFAIL from the kmalloc attempt and if that fails
will do a __GFP_NOFAIL vmalloc().

This is not an issue that productions systems will see as
filesystems with block size > page size cannot be mounted by the
kernel; Pankaj is developing this functionality right now.
