Subject: [PATCH v5 1/8] mm/util: Introduce kmemdup_array()

Introduce kmemdup_array() API to duplicate `n` number of elements
from a given array. This internally uses kmemdup to allocate and duplicate
the `src` array.

Signed-off-by: Kartik <kkartik@...dia.com>
---
v4 -> v5:
	* Simplify the implementation by just returning kmemdup(size_mul).
