We can't use vmalloc for the buffer used for volume table for some NAND
or NOR drivers may pass the buffer to DMA. And the volume table size
a.k.a vtbl_size is small so we can use kmalloc or kzalloc for it instead

I do not have objections if this patch becomes a member of a series of
patches which kick vmalloc from whole UBI. Applying just this patch does
not make much sense.

You may go through UBI code and try to split large vmalloc-ed buffers on
smaller kmalloc-ed ones.
