UBIFS: do not allocate too much
Bulk-read allocates 128KiB or more using kmalloc. The allocation starts failing often when the memory gets fragmented. UBIFS still works fine in this case, because it falls-back to standard (non-optimized) read method, though. This patch teaches bulk-read to allocate exactly the amount of memory it needs, instead of allocating 128KiB every time. This patch is also a preparation to the further fix where we'll have a pre-allocated bulk-read buffer as well. For example, now the @bu object is prepared in 'ubifs_bulk_read()', so we could path either pre-allocated or allocated information to 'ubifs_do_bulk_read()' later. Or teaching 'ubifs_do_bulk_read()' not to allocate 'bu->buf' if it is already there. Signed-off-by: Artem Bityutskiy <Artem.Bityutskiy@nokia.com>
