Subject: [PATCH 2/2] dh key: get rid of stack array allocation

Similarly to the previous patch, we would like to get rid of stack
allocated arrays: https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/3/7/621

In this case, we can also use a malloc style approach to free the temporary
buffer, being careful to also use kzfree to free them (indeed, at least one
of these has a memzero_explicit, but it seems like maybe they both
should?).
