[Linux-kernel-mentees] [PATCH v2] vivid: Fix global-out-of-bounds read in precalculate_color()

vivid_meta_out_process() is setting `brightness`, `contrast`, `saturation`
and `hue` using tpg_s_*(). This is wrong, since tpg_s_*() do not provide
range checks. Using tpg_s_*() here also makes the control framework
out-of-sync with the actual values. Use v4l2_ctrl_s_ctrl() instead.

This issue has been reported by syzbot as an out-of-bounds read bug in

I'm not very sure how to name this patch since we are fixing a bug in
v4l2-tpg by modifying vivid.

Change in v2:
    - Solve the root of the problem instead of adding more boundary checks
      in precalculate_color(). (Suggested by Hans Verkuil
      <hverkuil at xs4all.nl>)
