[PATCH 4.4 52/56] rbd: use GFP_NOIO for parent stat and data requests




4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Ilya Dryomov <idryomov@xxxxxxxxx>

commit 1e37f2f84680fa7f8394fd444b6928e334495ccc upstream.

rbd_img_obj_exists_submit() and rbd_img_obj_parent_read_full() are on
the writeback path for cloned images -- we attempt a stat on the parent
object to see if it exists and potentially read it in to call copyup.
GFP_NOIO should be used instead of GFP_KERNEL here.
