Subject[PATCH] rtc: s5m: Remove VLA usage
In preparation to enabling -Wvla, remove VLAs and replace them
with fixed-length arrays instead.

From a security viewpoint, the use of Variable Length Arrays can be
a vector for stack overflow attacks. Also, in general, as the code
evolves it is easy to lose track of how big a VLA can get. Thus, we
can end up having segfaults that are hard to debug.

Also, fixed as part of the directive to remove all VLAs from
the kernel: https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/3/7/621
