ima: Fix misuse of dereference of pointer in template_desc_init_fields()

The input parameter @fields is type of struct ima_template_field ***, so
when allocates array memory for @fields, the size of element should be
sizeof(**field) instead of sizeof(*field).

Actually the original code would not cause any runtime error, but it's
better to make it logically right.
