The four-byte-key (fbk) autotest was allocating the keys to be used for
the test on the stack. When the number of entries in the table was
increased significantly, for example, to test larger hashes by increase the
value of ENTRIES, this array of keys was greater than that
allowed on the stack, and so caused problems, i.e. crashes and core dumps.

The solution is to have the keys dynamically allocated on the heap using
malloc. Now if ENTRIES is increased and we run out of memory we get an
error message instead of a crash.

And in case anyone else is interested, or always gets prompted for the 
source email address when sending patches - configuring the "sendemail.from" 
value in your git configuration should make this go away.

	git config --global sendemail.from "name <email>"

See: http://git-scm.com/docs/git-send-email

Oops, apologies for the screwed-up origin address! Pressed "y" for "yes, I 
do want my emails to come from 'bruce.richardson@intel.com'" rather than 
just hitting enter when prompted!
