Subject[PATCH 5.8 108/118] s390/zcrypt: fix kmalloc 256k failure
Date
From: Harald Freudenberger <freude@linux.ibm.com>

commit b6186d7fb53349efd274263a45f0b08749ccaa2d upstream.

Tests showed that under stress conditions the kernel may
temporary fail to allocate 256k with kmalloc. However,
this fix reworks the related code in the cca_findcard2()
function to use kvmalloc instead.
