ipc sem: use kvmalloc for sem_undo allocation
Patch series "ipc: allocations cleanup", v2. Some ipc objects use the wrong allocation functions: small objects can use kmalloc(), and vice versa, potentially large objects can use kmalloc(). This patch (of 2): Size of sem_undo can exceed one page and with the maximum possible nsems = 32000 it can grow up to 64Kb. Let's switch its allocation to kvmalloc to avoid user-triggered disruptive actions like OOM killer in case of high-order memory shortage. User triggerable high order allocations are quite a problem on heavily fragmented systems. They can be a DoS vector.
