Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 144/252] staging: rtl8188: avoid excessive stack usage

From: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@...db.de>

[ Upstream commit c497ae2077c055b85c1bf04f3d182a84bd8f365b ]

The rtl8188 copy of the os_dep support code causes a
warning about a very significant stack usage in the translate_scan()
function:

drivers/staging/rtl8188eu/os_dep/ioctl_linux.c: In function 'translate_scan':
drivers/staging/rtl8188eu/os_dep/ioctl_linux.c:306:1: error: the frame size of 1560 bytes is larger than 1400 bytes [-Werror=frame-larger-than=]

Use the same trick as in the rtl8723bs copy of the same function, and
allocate it dynamically.
