fix high memory usage during any operation with '--buffer'
The --buffer command line option was passed to setvbuf(3). Computers are fast enough and libc is good enough that we realistically do not need this. Hostboot's would pass --buffer 0x40000000 which resulted in a malloc(2GB), which would fail on systems with less than 2GB of memory because sometimes libc and the kernel are sane. So, we keep the command line option for backwards compatibility but completely ignore it. In the few places where it was used to allocate a buffer to do work in (and this was via a rather round-about way), we instead just allocate something the size of the PNOR image.
