Subject: [PATCH 3/5] [RFC] staging: rts5208: make len a u16 in rtsx_write_cfg_seq

A warning occurs when vzalloc is annotated in a subsequent patch to tell
the compiler that its parameter is an allocation size:

drivers/staging/rts5208/rtsx_chip.c: In function ‘rtsx_write_cfg_seq’:
drivers/staging/rts5208/rtsx_chip.c:1453:7: warning: argument 1 value ‘18446744073709551615’ exceeds maximum object size 9223372036854775807 [-Walloc-size-larger-than=]
  data = vzalloc(array_size(dw_len, 4));
  ~~~~~^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This occurs because len and dw_len are signed integers and the parameter to
array_size is a size_t. If dw_len is a negative integer, it will become a
very large positive number when cast to size_t. This could cause an
overflow, so array_size(), will return SIZE_MAX _at compile time_. gcc then
notices that this value is too large for an allocation and throws a
warning.

rtsx_write_cfg_seq is only called from write_cfg_byte in rtsx_scsi.c.
There, len is a u16. So make len a u16 in rtsx_write_cfg_seq too. This
means dw_len can never be negative, avoiding the potential overflow and the
warning.

This should not cause a functional change, but was compile tested only.
