The mlx5_flow_get_reg_id() function translates tag ID to register
from the registers that are supported and available for use. The
user does not know which register is available at a time and therefore
there is an array that represents mapping to the available registers.
Usually the free registers are continuous in the flow_mreg_c array but
sometimes the mtr_color_reg register is between them and it must be
skipped and the next register returned, in which case the function
returns the mapping of the next entity in the array.

When the function reads from the next entity in the array, it does not
check whether such an entity exists and in some situation invalid access
to memory occurs beyond the array boundaries.

So, when all the registers are valid from HW perspective and the meter
color register is not the default, the tag id 5 causes an out of bound

Validate registers availability when meter color register is not the

Coverity issue: 146355
Fixes: 792e749e92d5 ("net/mlx5: fix register usage in meter")
