Subject: [PATCH 10/14] iwlwifi: dbg_ini: drop double zeroing

sg_init_table zeroes its first argument, so the allocation of that argument
doesn't have to.

the semantic patch that makes this change is as follows:
(http://coccinelle.lip6.fr/)

// <smpl>
@@
expression x,n,flags;
@@

x = 
- kcalloc
+ kmalloc_array
  (n,sizeof(*x),flags)
...
sg_init_table(x,n)
// </smpl>
