Subject[PATCH] mtd: nftl: Remove VLA usage
On the quest to remove all VLAs from the kernel[1] this changes the
check_free_sectors() routine to use the same stack buffer for both
data byte checks (SECTORSIZE) and oob byte checks (oobsize). Since
these regions aren't needed at the same time, they don't need to be
consecutively allocated. Additionally, while it's possible for oobsize
to be large, it is unlikely to be larger than the actual SECTORSIZE. As
such, remove the VLA, adjust offsets and add a sanity check to make sure
we never get a pathological oobsize.
