Subject: [PATCH v2 06/12] IB/ocrdma: Use kmalloc_array() in
 ocrdma_create_srq()

From: Markus Elfring <elfring@...rs.sourceforge.net>
Date: Sat, 22 Apr 2017 14:17:46 +0200

* 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.

* Replace the specification of a data type by a pointer dereference
  to make the corresponding size determination a bit safer according to
  the Linux coding style convention.
