This is an effort to get rid of all multiplications from allocation
functions in order to prevent integer overflows [1].

As the cpu variable is a pointer to "struct bcm6345_l1_cpu" and this
structure ends in a flexible array:

struct bcm6345_l1_cpu {
	u32	enable_cache[];

the preferred way in the kernel is to use the struct_size() helper to
do the arithmetic instead of the argument "size + count * size" in the
kzalloc() function.

This way, the code is more readable and more safer.
