Subject: [PATCH] VMCI: Use kmalloc_array() in qp_alloc_ppn_set()

From: Markus Elfring <elfring@...rs.sourceforge.net>
Date: Sun, 8 Jan 2017 14:04:10 +0100

Multiplications for the size determination of memory allocations
indicated that array data structures should be processed.
Thus use the corresponding function "kmalloc_array".

This issue was detected by using the Coccinelle software.
