Documentation: i2c: Remove obsolete example
Documentation/i2c/fault-codes illustrates EINVAL error code as follows: "One example would be a driver trying an SMBus Block Write with block size outside the range of 1-32 bytes." However, the actual implementation of i2c subsystem truncates data length to be 32 bytes. Hence this example cannot happen anymore, and since it's obsolete, let's simply remove it from Documentation/i2c/fault-codes.
