Subject: [PATCH] assoc_array: Avoid open coded arithmetic in allocator arguments

As noted in the "Deprecated Interfaces, Language Features, Attributes,
and Conventions" documentation [1], size calculations (especially
multiplication) should not be performed in memory allocator (or similar)
function arguments due to the risk of them overflowing. This could lead
to values wrapping around and a smaller allocation being made than the
caller was expecting. Using those allocations could lead to linear
overflows of heap memory and other misbehaviors.

So, use the struct_size() helper to do the arithmetic instead of the
argument "size + count * size" in the kmalloc() and kzalloc() functions.

Also, take the opportunity to refactor the memcpy() calls to use the
struct_size() and flex_array_size() helpers.
