[PATCH] net/ibm/emac: Remove VLA usage




In the quest to remove all stack VLA usage from the kernel[1], this
removes the VLA used for the emac xaht registers size. Since the size
of registers can only ever be 4 or 8, as detected in emac_init_config(),
the max can be hardcoded and a runtime test added for robustness.
