Hm, do we really need to add this function? I would just kmalloc the bfpt
and header objects in spi_nor_parse_bfpt(), which would avoid the extra
heap-to-stack copy and also simplify this patch.

I understand that you want to generically address the problem, but AFAICT
this patch is not doing that since the user has to explicitly call
spi_nor_read_sfdp_dma_unsafe(), and I'm not even sure
spi_nor_read_sfdp_dma_unsafe() can/will be re-used in the generic solution
you envision.

Let's try to keep the fix as simple as possible and think about a better
approach afterwards.
