This is sort of unrelated, but for Smatch purposes the csi2rx->max_lanes
comes from the firmware in csi2rx_parse_dt() and it could be any u8

I sort of wish that people would write code which was known to be
correct just from reading the kernel code, without looking at the
firmware... I guess I could mark v4l2_fwnode_endpoint_parse() as always
giving us valid data, but that still wouldn't tell us what the valid
data is. It's hard to know the right answer from a static analysis
point of view.
