Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.4 287/350] tracing: use kvcalloc for tgid_map array allocation
From: Yuming Han <>

[ Upstream commit 6ee40511cb838f9ced002dff7131bca87e3ccbdd ]

Fail to allocate memory for tgid_map, because it requires order-6 page.
detail as:

c3 sh: page allocation failure: order:6,
mode:0x140c0c0(GFP_KERNEL), nodemask=(null)
c3 sh cpuset=/ mems_allowed=0
c3 CPU: 3 PID: 5632 Comm: sh Tainted: G W O 4.14.133+ #10
c3 Hardware name: Generic DT based system
c3 Backtrace:

Switch to use kvcalloc to avoid unexpected allocation failures.
