[PATCH] drm/i915/gvt/fb_decoder: Fix out-of-bounds read

In case function skl_format_to_drm returns -EINVAL, fmt turns into a huge
number as fmt is of type u32, hence there is an out-of-bounds read when
using fmt as an index for array skl_pixel_formats at line 225:
plane->bpp = skl_pixel_formats[fmt].bpp;

Fix this by comparing the value returned by function skl_format_to_drm
against the size of array skl_pixel_formats, so in case it is greater than
or equal to the number of items contained in skl_pixel_formats, print an
error message and return -EINVAL.
