USB: Don't use GFP_KERNEL while we cannot reset a storage device
Memory allocations with GFP_KERNEL can cause IO to a storage device which can fail resulting in a need to reset the device. Therefore GFP_KERNEL cannot be safely used between usb_lock_device() and usb_unlock_device(). Replace by GFP_NOIO.
