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

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

From: Tomoya MORINAGA <tomoya.rohm@gmail.com>

commit 5c1ef59168c485318e40ba485c1eba57d81d0faa upstream.

pdc_desc_get() is called from pd_prep_slave_sg, and the function is
called from interrupt context(e.g. Uart driver "pch_uart.c").
In fact, I saw kernel error message.
So, GFP_ATOMIC must be used not GFP_NOIO.
