Subject: [PATCH][v2] proc: use vmalloc for our kernel buffer

Since

  sysctl: pass kernel pointers to ->proc_handler

we have been pre-allocating a buffer to copy the data from the proc
handlers into, and then copying that to userspace.  The problem is this
just blind kmalloc()'s the buffer size passed in from the read, which in
the case of our 'cat' binary was 64kib.  Order-4 allocations are not
awesome, and since we can potentially allocate up to our maximum order,
use vmalloc for these buffers.

Fixes: 32927393dc1c ("sysctl: pass kernel pointers to ->proc_handler")
Signed-off-by: Josef Bacik <josef@...icpanda.com>

v1->v2:
- Make vmemdup_user_nul actually do the right thing...sorry about that.
