Subject: [PATCH v2] [media] dvb-usb-firmware: don't do DMA on stack

The buffer allocation for the firmware data was changed in
commit 43fab9793c1f ("dvb-usb: don't use stack for firmware load"),
but the same applies for the reset value.

Signed-off-by: Stefan Brüns <stefan.bruens@...h-aachen.de>

This patch replaces the earlier submission conflicting with commit
43fab9793c1f, which was a subset of the submitted patch.
