The use of kmalloc_array() introduces a duplicate of the size capping
check that already exists in the code. However it seems that gcc is
smart enough to figure that out and doesn't emit it twice.

Note that I'm not implying that the existing check should be removed if
this patch is applied though. Having it there makes the code clearer.
But if this patch makes a Coccinelle script happier then ...
