parport: ax88796: Improve a size determination in parport_ax88796_probe()
Replace the specification of a data structure by a pointer dereference as the parameter for the operator "sizeof" to make the corresponding size determination a bit safer according to the Linux coding style convention. This issue was detected by using the Coccinelle software.
