Subject: [PATCH 18/26] [media] i2c: cx25840: avoid stack overflow with KASAN

With CONFIG_KASAN, this driver has shown a ridiculously large stack frame
in one configuration:

drivers/media/i2c/cx25840/cx25840-core.c:4960:1: error: the frame size of 94000 bytes is larger than 2048 bytes [-Werror=frame-larger-than=]

In most builds, it's only about 3300 bytes, but that's still large anough to
risk a kernel stack overflow.

Marking the two register access functions as noinline_for_kasan avoids
the problem and brings the largest stack frame size down to 232 bytes.
