Subject: target: Fix PR_APTPL_BUF_LEN buffer size limitation

commit f161d4b44d7cc1dc66b53365215227db356378b1 upstream.

This patch addresses the original PR_APTPL_BUF_LEN = 8k limitiation
for write-out of PR APTPL metadata that Martin has recently been
running into.

It changes core_scsi3_update_and_write_aptpl() to use vzalloc'ed
memory instead of kzalloc, and increases the default hardcoded
length to 256k.

It also adds logic in core_scsi3_update_and_write_aptpl() to double
the original length upon core_scsi3_update_aptpl_buf() failure, and
retries until the vzalloc'ed buffer is large enough to accommodate
the outgoing APTPL metadata.
