[PATCH] staging: kpc2000: fix alloc_cast.cocci warnings

From: kbuild test robot <lkp@xxxxxxxxx>

drivers/staging/kpc2000/kpc_dma/fileops.c:60:8-26: WARNING: casting value returned by memory allocation function to (struct aio_cb_data *) is useless.

 Remove casting the values returned by memory allocation functions
 like kmalloc, kzalloc, kmem_cache_alloc, kmem_cache_zalloc etc.

Semantic patch information:
 This makes an effort to find cases of casting of values returned by
 kmalloc, kzalloc, kcalloc, kmem_cache_alloc, kmem_cache_zalloc,
 kmem_cache_alloc_node, kmalloc_node and kzalloc_node and removes
 the casting as it is not required. The result in the patch case may
 need some reformatting.
