Subject[PATCH] [media] s3c-camif: fix out-of-bounds array access
While experimenting with older compiler versions, I ran
into a warning that no longer shows up on gcc-4.8 or newer:

drivers/media/platform/s3c-camif/camif-capture.c: In function '__camif_subdev_try_format':
drivers/media/platform/s3c-camif/camif-capture.c:1265:25: error: array subscript is below array bounds

This is an off-by-one bug, leading to an access before the start of the
array, while newer compilers silently assume this undefined behavior
cannot happen and leave the loop at index 0 if no other entry matches.

Since the code is not only wrong, but also has no effect besides the
out-of-bounds access, this patch just removes it.

I found an existing gcc bug for it and added a reduced version
of the function there.

Fixes: babde1c243b2 ("[media] V4L: Add driver for S3C24XX/S3C64XX SoC series camera interface")
