Description: qeth: use vzalloc for QUERY OAT buffer

Symptom: qethqoat tool fails.

Problem: qeth_query_oat_command() currently allocates the kernel
              buffer for the SIOC_QETH_QUERY_OAT ioctl with kzalloc.

Solution: Using vzalloc() instead of kzalloc(), backing the allocation with non-contiguous memory.

Commit -ID: aec45e857c5538664edb76a60dd452e3265f37d1
kernel 4.19.

To be fixed for 18.10, 18,04 and 16.04.
