Subject[PATCH] vsprintf: Remove accidental VLA usage
The "sym" calculation is actually a fixed size, but since the max()
macro uses some extensive tricks for safety, it ends up looking like a
variable size. This replaces max() with a simple max macro which is
sufficient for the calculation of the array size.

Seen with -Wvla. Fixed as part of the directive to remove all VLAs from
the kernel: https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/3/7/621
