Subject[PATCH 1/2] n2rng: Use devm_kcalloc() in n2rng_probe()
From
Date
From: Markus Elfring <elfring@users.sourceforge.net>
Date: Wed, 19 Apr 2017 10:30:47 +0200

* A multiplication for the size determination of a memory allocation
indicated that an array data structure should be processed.
Thus use the corresponding function "devm_kcalloc".

* Replace the specification of a data structure by a pointer dereference
to make the corresponding size determination a bit safer according to
the Linux coding style convention.
