Subject[PATCH v2] drm/amdkfd: Fix an illegal memory access
In the kfd_wait_on_events() function, the kfd_event_waiter structure is
allocated by alloc_event_waiters(), but the event field of the waiter
structure is not initialized; When copy_from_user() fails in the
kfd_wait_on_events() function, it will enter exception handling to
release the previously allocated memory of the waiter structure;
Due to the event field of the waiters structure being accessed
in the free_waiters() function, this results in illegal memory access
and system crash, here is the crash log:

Changes since v1:
* Allocate the waiter structure using kzalloc, removing the initialization of activated;
* '(event_waiters) &&' in the 'for' loop has also been removed.
