This seems fine to me. I measured zstd's performance in userspace with this change,
and there is a ~1% speed regression for level 1. We wouldn't take this patch there,
but in the kernel it makes sense to me.

This function is called by HUF_buildCTable_wksp() which takes a workspace parameter.
We could put this table into the workspace instead to reduce the stack usage by the whole
256 bytes. We'd just have to make sure that the workspace is large enough.

Eventually I will update the zstd in the kernel to the latest upstream version. I've opened
up https://github.com/facebook/zstd/issues/1636 to make sure we get this optimization in
before porting.
