Subject[PATCH] usnic: avoid overly large buffers on stack
Date
It's never a good idea to put a 1000-byte buffer on the kernel
stack. The compiler warns about this instance when usnic_ib_log_vf()
gets inlined into usnic_ib_pci_probe():

drivers/infiniband/hw/usnic/usnic_ib_main.c:543:12: error: stack frame size of 1044 bytes in function 'usnic_ib_pci_probe' [-Werror,-Wframe-larger-than=]

As this is only called for debugging purposes in the setup path,
it's trivial to convert to a dynamic allocation.
