video: fbdev: s3fb: Check the size of screen before memset_io()

In the function s3fb_set_par(), the value of 'screen_size' is
calculated by the user input. If the user provides the improper value,
the value of 'screen_size' may larger than 'info->screen_size', which
may cause the following bug:

[   54.083733] BUG: unable to handle page fault for address: ffffc90003000000

Fix the this by checking the value of 'screen_size' before memset_io().
