Subject: [PATCH v3] usb: gadget: ffs: Fix sparse error

This patch fixes the sparse error in functionfs
driver.

drivers/usb/gadget/function/f_fs.c:400:44: error: bad
constant experssion.

Dynamic memory allocation through kcalloc is more safer
than declaring variable array size, Fix this error by
using kcalloc for memory allocation, Check if memory
allocation is successful and return -ENOMEM on failure.

Signed-off-by: Rohith Seelaboyina <rseelaboyina@...dia.com>
---
Changes in v3:
   - Follow kernel coding style to seperate variable
     declaration and assignment.
Changes in v2:
   - Use kcalloc to allocate memory instead of using 
     kmalloc and memset.
