Subject: [PATCH] rsi: Remove stack VLA usage

The kernel would like to have all stack VLA usage removed[1].  rsi uses
a VLA based on 'blksize'.  Elsewhere in the SDIO code maximum block size
is defined using a magic number.  We can use a pre-processor defined
constant and declare the array to maximum size.  We add a check before
accessing the array in case of programmer error.
