Subject: [PATCH 01/19] [media] uvc_driver: Use kmalloc_array() in
 uvc_simplify_fraction()

From: Markus Elfring <elfring@...rs.sourceforge.net>
Date: Sat, 24 Dec 2016 21:10:16 +0100

A multiplication for the size determination of a memory allocation
indicated that an array data structure should be processed.
Thus use the corresponding function "kmalloc_array".

This issue was detected by using the Coccinelle software.
