Subject: [PATCH v2] power: supply: da9150-fg: remove VLA usage

In preparation to enabling -Wvla, remove VLA usage and replace it
with fixed-length arrays.

DA9150_QIF_LONG_SIZE (4 bytes) is the biggest size of an attribute which can
be accessed [1].

Fixed as part of the directive to remove all VLAs from
the kernel: https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/3/7/621

Changes in v2:
 - Use DA9150_QIF_LONG_SIZE instead of DA9150_QIF_BYTE_SIZE as the
   maximum size for array 'buf'. Thanks to Adam Thomson for the
   feedback on this.
 - Update changelog based on Adam's comments.
