[PATCH 4.4 39/45] catc: Use heap buffer for memory size test




4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Ben Hutchings <ben@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 2d6a0e9de03ee658a9adc3bfb2f0ca55dff1e478 upstream.

Allocating USB buffers on the stack is not portable, and no longer
works on x86_64 (with VMAP_STACK enabled as per default).

Fixes: 1da177e4c3f4 ("Linux-2.6.12-rc2")
