netns: fix GFP flags in rtnl_net_notifyid()
In rtnl_net_notifyid(), we certainly can't pass a null GFP flag to rtnl_notify(). A GFP_KERNEL flag would be fine in most circumstances, but there are a few paths calling rtnl_net_notifyid() from atomic context or from RCU critical sections. The later also precludes the use of gfp_any() as it wouldn't detect the RCU case. Also, the nlmsg_new() call is wrong too, as it uses GFP_KERNEL unconditionally. Therefore, we need to pass the GFP flags as parameter and propagate it through function calls until the proper flags can be determined. In most cases, GFP_KERNEL is fine. The exceptions are: * openvswitch: ovs_vport_cmd_get() and ovs_vport_cmd_dump() indirectly call rtnl_net_notifyid() from RCU critical section, * rtnetlink: rtmsg_ifinfo_build_skb() already receives GFP flags as parameter. Also, in ovs_vport_cmd_build_info(), let's change the GFP flags used by nlmsg_new(). The function is allowed to sleep, so better make the flags consistent with the ones used in the following ovs_vport_cmd_fill_info() call. Found by code inspection.
