Subject: [PATCH] bnx2fc: reduce stack usage in __bnx2fc_enable

When the bnx2fc driver was changed to read the npiv table from
nvram, the stack of the __bnx2fc_enable function gained an
additional 1028 byte structure that gcc rightfully warns about:

drivers/scsi/bnx2fc/bnx2fc_fcoe.c: In function '__bnx2fc_enable':
drivers/scsi/bnx2fc/bnx2fc_fcoe.c:2134:1: warning: the frame size of 1128 bytes is larger than 1024 bytes [-Wframe-larger-than=]

In order to avoid a possible kernel stack overflow and to get rid
of the warning, this changes the function to use a dynamic allocation
of the structure using kzalloc.

Signed-off-by: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@...db.de>
Fixes: 2971ff67bd3 ("bnx2fc: Read npiv table from nvram and create vports.")
---
The original patch was merged through netdev along with the respective
ethernet driver changes, but this should probably go through the scsi
tree, as no ethernet changes are involved.
