Subject: mtd: pmcmsp-flash: Allocating too much in init_msp_flash()
commit 79ad07d45743721010e766e65dc004ad249bd429 upstream.
There is a cut and paste issue here. The bug is that we are allocating
more memory than necessary for msp_maps. We should be allocating enough
space for a map_info struct (144 bytes) but we instead allocate enough
for an mtd_info struct (1840 bytes). It's a small waste.
The other part of this is not harmful but when we allocated msp_flash
then we allocated enough space fro a map_info pointer instead of an
mtd_info pointer. But since pointers are the same size it works out
Anyway, I decided to clean up all three allocations a bit to make them
a bit more consistent and clear.
