Default dm space map checker: fix allocation failure during init

If CONFIG_DM_DEBUG_SPACE_MAPS is enabled, memory is fragmented and a
sufficiently large metadata device is used in a thin-pool then the space
map checker can fail to allocate via kmalloc.

Switch from kmalloc to vmalloc to allow larger virtually contiguous
allocations for the space map checker's internal count arrays.
