Subject[PATCHv2 4/4] gpio: Remove VLA from stmpe driver
Date
The new challenge is to remove VLAs from the kernel
(see https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/3/7/621)

This patch replaces a VLA with an appropriate call to kmalloc_array.

Signed-off-by: Laura Abbott <labbott@redhat.com>

v2: Switch to GFP_KERNEL. There was some discussion about if we should
be doing the allocation at all but given a) the allocation is pretty
small and b) we can possibly take a mutex in a called function I think
this is fine.
