[PATCH v4 2/3] powerpc/fadump: Use the correct VMCOREINFO_NOTE_SIZE for phdr




vmcoreinfo_max_size stands for the vmcoreinfo_data, the
correct one we should use is vmcoreinfo_note whose total
size is VMCOREINFO_NOTE_SIZE.

Like explained in commit 77019967f06b ("kdump: fix exported
size of vmcoreinfo note"), it should not affect the actual
function, but we better fix it, also this change should be
safe and backward compatible.

After this, we can get rid of variable vmcoreinfo_max_size,
let's use the corresponding macros directly, fewer variables
means more safety for vmcoreinfo operation.
