I have to forward this question: Stefano introduced all five MAX_*
values here when splitting out the LFB code in commit e7cb35e8b1
("xen: introduce a generic framebuffer driver"). I apparently didn't
even notice back then that three of them are entirely unused, and
the two dimension ones had no upper bound before.

Stefano: Why were all of these introduced (there's no explanation
in the description) and what were the values derived from? Will
anything break if we remove them?
