Subject: [ 26/40] HID: battery: dont do DMA from stack

3.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Jiri Kosina <jkosina@...e.cz>

commit 6c2794a2984f4c17a58117a68703cc7640f01c5a upstream.

Instead of using data from stack for DMA in hidinput_get_battery_property(),
allocate the buffer dynamically.
