Hi, (and sorry if you receive this email twice. I've used a web mail

Searching with coccinelle with:
*   x = usb_alloc_coherent(..., <+... GFP_KERNEL ...+>, ...);
finds 67 files,

whereas:
*   x = usb_alloc_coherent(..., <+... GFP_ATOMIC ...+>, ...);
only finds 11 files.

No real reason in fact, just to be consistent with surrounding code.

Unless some allocations are done within a spin_lock/spin_unlock, using 
both GFP_KERNEL and GFP_ATOMIC in the same function looks spurious to me.
Either there is a bug (GFP_KERNEL should be GFP_ATOMIC), or a useless 
constraint is given to the memory allocator.
