    net/sock: teach sock_kmalloc() to call kvmalloc() when possible
    Memory size to be allocated depends on the number of rules provided by
    userspace, but not more than net.core.optmem_max (20480 by default),
    which still allows to allocate 3rd order pages via kmalloc() =>
    it's better to substitute it with kvmalloc().
    But sock_kmalloc() can be called with GFP_ATOMIC from some places,
    so we cannot unconditionally call kvmalloc() instead of kmalloc().
    Hopefully sk_attach_filter() calls sock_kmalloc() with GFP_KERNEL,
    so kvmalloc() can be used there.
    => use kvmalloc_check() which calls kvmalloc() if it's allowed
    by provided flags.

    Ughh, but ok.
