    ms/netlink: do not enter direct reclaim from netlink_trim()
    [ Upstream commit e89df813174d]
    In commit d35c99ff77ecb ("netlink: do not enter direct reclaim from
    netlink_dump()") we made sure to not trigger expensive memory reclaim.
    Problem is that a bit later, netlink_trim() might be called and
    trigger memory reclaim.
    netlink_trim() should be best effort, and really as fast as possible.
    Under memory pressure, it is fine to not trim this skb.
