struct gntdev_copy_batch is arguably too large to fit on the kernel stack,
and we get a warning about the stack usage in gntdev_ioctl_grant_copy:

drivers/xen/gntdev.c:949:1: error: the frame size of 1240 bytes is larger than 1024 bytes

This changes the code to us a dynamic allocation instead.

Fixes: a4cdb556cae0 ("xen/gntdev: add ioctl for grant copy")
---
This is a regression against v4.4, found with ARM randconfig testing.
