Subject[PATCH v3] thunderbolt: Use kcalloc and correct the argument to sizeof
nhi->rx_rings does not have type as struct tb_ring *, as it is a double
pointer. So, the elements of the array should have pointer type, not
structure type. The advantage of kcalloc is, that will prevent integer
overflows which could result from the multiplication of number of
elements and size and it is also a bit nicer to read.

The Coccinelle semantic patch that makes the first change is as follows:

// <smpl>
@disable sizeof_type_expr@
type T;
T **x;
@@

x =
<+...sizeof(
- T
+ *x
)...+>
// </smpl>
