wl1251: allocate space for firmware with vmalloc()

Earlier firmware was stored to a memory area allocated with kmalloc()
but finding a a contiguous area of memory long enough for the firmware is
very difficult in certain cases. better to allocate the memory for firmware
with vmalloc() instead and use a small buffer for DMA transfers.

Thanks to Eero Tamminen for the idea.
