Subject: [media] cx18: struct i2c_client is too big for stack

commit 1d212cf0c2d89adf3d0a6d62d729076f49f087dc upstream.

	drivers/media/pci/cx18/cx18-driver.c: In function 'cx18_read_eeprom':
	drivers/media/pci/cx18/cx18-driver.c:357:1: warning: the frame size of 1072 bytes is larger than 1024 bytes [-Wframe-larger-than=]
That happens because the routine allocates 256 bytes for an eeprom buffer, plus
the size of struct i2c_client, with is big.
Change the logic to dynamically allocate/deallocate space for struct i2c_client,
instead of  using the stack.
