[PATCH] partitions/efi.c: replace useless kzalloc's by kmalloc's

From: Philippe De Muyter
Date: Mon Apr 29 2013 - 17:01:14 EST

In alloc_read_gpt_entries and alloc_read_gpt_header, the kzalloc'ated
zones are either totally overwritten by the following read_lba call,
or freed. As kmalloc is cheaper than kzalloc, use kmalloc.
