drivers/net/wireless/ipw2x00: Use kmemdup

Use kmemdup when some other buffer is immediately copied into the
allocated region.

A simplified version of the semantic patch that makes this change is as
follows: (


// <smpl>
expression from,to,size,flag;
statement S;

-  to = \(kmalloc\|kzalloc\)(size,flag);
+  to = kmemdup(from,size,flag);
   if (to==NULL || ...) S
-  memcpy(to, from, size);
// </smpl>
