Subject: [PATCH] drm: arm: replace snprintf in show functions with sysfs_emit

show() must not use snprintf() when formatting the value to be
returned to user space.

Fix the following coccicheck warning:
drivers/gpu/drm/arm/malidp_drv.c:657:8-16: WARNING: use scnprintf or sprintf.

Use sysfs_emit instead of scnprintf or sprintf makes more sense.
