slob: do not pass the SLAB flags as GFP in kmem_cache_create()
Catalin Marinas [Mon, 15 Dec 2008 21:54:16 +0000 (13:54 -0800)]
The kmem_cache_create() function in the slob allocator passes the SLAB
flags as GFP flags to the slob_alloc() function.  The patch changes this
call to pass GFP_KERNEL as the other allocators seem to do.
