fri2.conf: fix boot time kernel errors

The EMGD driver needs at least 256Mb of vmalloc memory to work correctly, according to the EMGD documentation This change passes the vmalloc allocation size to the kernel via the vmalloc=256MB boot parameter. Adjusting the kernel's vmalloc allocation size fixes the kernel errors. This fixes bug: [Yocto #3810] Signed-off-by: Nitin A Kamble <> Acked-by: Darren Hart <> Signed-off-by: Tom Zanussi <>
