Subject: [PATCH v3 ipsec-next] xfrm: remove VLA usage in __xfrm6_sort()

In the quest to remove all stack VLA usage removed from the kernel[1],
just use XFRM_MAX_DEPTH as already done for the "class" array. In one
case, it'll do this loop up to 5, the other caller up to 6.

v3:
- adjust Subject and commit log (Steffen)
- use "= { }" instead of memset() (Stefano)
- reorder variables (Stefano)
v2:
- use XFRM_MAX_DEPTH for "count" array (Steffen and Mathias).
