Subject: [Intel-wired-lan] [PATCH 1/1] ixgbe: use kzalloc for allocating one thing

Use kzalloc rather than kcalloc(1..

The semantic patch that makes this change is as follows:

// <smpl>

- kcalloc(1,
+ kzalloc(
// </smpl>

and removing checkpatch below CHECK:
CHECK: Prefer kzalloc(sizeof(*fwd_adapter)...) over kzalloc(sizeof(struct ixgbe_fwd_adapter)...)
