But kmalloc cannot handle it regardless of GFP.

Ok maybe write something like this

if (size > KMALLOC_MAX_SIZE) {
	if (WARN_ON_ONCE((flags & GFP_KERNEL) != GFP_KERNEL)
		return NULL;
	goto do_vmalloc;
}

or fix that uncertainty right in vmalloc

For now comment in vmalloc declares

  *	Any use of gfp flags outside of GFP_KERNEL should be consulted
  *	with mm people.
