Fix those sparse warnings:
	drivers/media/media-entity.c:238:17: warning: Variable length array is used.
	drivers/media/media-entity.c:239:17: warning: Variable length array is used.

That allows sparse and other code check tools to verify if the
function is using more stack than allowed.

It also solves a bad Kernel pratice of using var length arrays
at the stack.
