We observed a large(order-3) allocation in evdev_open() and it may
cause an OOM kenrel panic in kzalloc(), before we getting to the
vzalloc() fallback.

Fix it by converting kzalloc()/vzalloc() to kvzalloc() to avoid the
OOM killer logic as we have a vmalloc fallback.

InputReader invoked oom-killer: gfp_mask=0x240c2c0
(GFP_KERNEL|__GFP_NOWARN|__GFP_COMP|__GFP_ZERO), nodemask=0, order=3,
oom_score_adj=-900

Hi,

Gentle ping.

note:
We can also observe this issue in kernel-4.4, kernel-4.9, and
kernel-4.14.
