[PATCH] clk: ti: composite: Prefer kcalloc over open coded arithmetic

From: Len Baker
Date: Sat Sep 04 2021 - 09:19:52 EST

As noted in the "Deprecated Interfaces, Language Features, Attributes,
and Conventions" documentation [1], size calculations (especially
multiplication) should not be performed in memory allocator (or similar)
function arguments due to the risk of them overflowing. This could lead
to values wrapping around and a smaller allocation being made than the
caller was expecting. Using those allocations could lead to linear
overflows of heap memory and other misbehaviors.

So, use the purpose specific kcalloc() function instead of the argument
size * count in the kzalloc() function.
