Subject: [PATCH] drm/i2c: tda998x: Remove VLA usage

There's an ongoing effort to remove VLAs[1] from the kernel to eventually
turn on -Wvla. The vla in reg_write_range is based on the length of data
passed. The one use of a non-constant size for this range is bounded by
the size buffer passed to hdmi_infoframe_pack which is a fixed size.
Switch to this upper bound.

This one really feels like it should be a #define but I wasn't sure
where the 32 came from. It looks like most other uses use one of the
#defines in include/linux/hdmi?
