While running xfstests on 4.14.304 version we see a warning being
generated in one of ext4 tests with the following stack trace.

It seems rebase to 4.14.304 brings a bunch of ext4 changes.
Commit ext4: allocate extended attribute value in vmalloc area
(73c44f61dab180b5f2dee9f15397aba36a75a882) tries to allocate buffer
using kvmalloc with improper flags that generates this warning.
To fix backport an upstream commit mm: kvmalloc does not
fallback to vmalloc for incompatible gfp flags
(170f26afa0481c72af93aa61b7398b5663451651). This removes the WARN_ON and
fallsback to kmalloc if correct flags are not passed.
