[ Upstream commit 3f167e1921865b379a9becf03828e7202c7b4917 ]

ipv4_pdp_add() is called in RCU read-side critical section.
So GFP_KERNEL should not be used in the function.
This patch make ipv4_pdp_add() to use GFP_ATOMIC instead of GFP_KERNEL.

Test commands:
gtp-link add gtp1 &
gtp-tunnel add gtp1 v1 100 200 1.1.1.1 2.2.2.2

Splat looks like:
