'rtl8192_irq_rx_tasklet()' is a tasklet initialized in
From this function it is possible to allocate some memory with the
GFP_KERNEL flag, which is not allowed in the atomic context of a tasklet.

Use GFP_ATOMIC instead.

The call chain is:
  rtl8192_irq_rx_tasklet            (in r8192U_core.c)
    --> rtl8192_rx_nomal            (in r8192U_core.c)
      --> ieee80211_rx              (in ieee80211/ieee80211_rx.c)
        --> RxReorderIndicatePacket (in ieee80211/ieee80211_rx.c)
