_sctp_make_chunk() could allocate skbs up to 65K in size
(4th order page), so we get complains about high order page
allocations from our detection mechanizm while running sctp

It's not evident that substituting alloc_skb() with
alloc_skb_with_frags() speeds up the sender performance.
On another hand if the node's memory is highly fragmented
and allocation of high order pages has noticable latency,
it influences the sender most, not the node as a whole.

And taking into account that sctp is not widely used,
let's just shut up the warning in this place.
