Subject[PATCH 01/18] mtd-cfi_cmdset_0001: Use kmalloc_array() in cfi_intelext_partition_fixup()
From
Date
From: Markus Elfring <elfring@users.sourceforge.net>

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

This issue was detected by using the Coccinelle software.

* 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.
