media: lirc_zilog: Don't use dynamic static allocation
commit ac5b4b6bf0c84c48d7e2e3fce22e35b04282ba76 upstream. Dynamic static allocation is evil, as Kernel stack is too low, and ompilation complains about it on some archs: drivers/staging/media/lirc/lirc_zilog.c:967:1: warning: 'read' uses dynamic stack allocation [enabled by default] Instead, let's enforce a limit for the buffer to be 64. That should be more than enough.
