This patch switch to use kvmalloc_array() for using a vmalloc()
fallback to help in case kmalloc() fails.

Reported-by: syzbot+e4d4f9ddd4295539735d@syzkaller.appspotmail.com
Fixes: 2e0ab8ca83c12 ("ptr_ring: array based FIFO for pointers")

Above isn't really saying anything about the motivation, it
just explains what kvmalloc_array does.

How about:

Switch ptr_ring from kmalloc to kvmalloc. This way it can support larger
ring sizes.

I don't see this as a bugfix - it's more of an enhancement.

Do we need this in net or can we defer this to net-next?

I'm not sure myself. For now

Consider they are users of tx_queue_len of more than 1000000 from google 
searching. We'd better have this in -net.
