Subject: [PATCHv2] dmaengine: dmatest: Remove use of VLAs

There's an ongoing effort to remove VLAs from the kernel
(https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/3/7/621) to eventually turn on -Wvla.
The test already pre-allocates some buffers with kmalloc so turn
the two VLAs in to pre-allocated kmalloc buffers.

Signed-off-by: Laura Abbott <labbott@...hat.com>
---
v2: Switch to using kmalloc buffers instead of putting a large array on
the stack.
