[PATCH] RISC-V: Fix register class subset checks for CLASS_MAX_NREGS

Hi Maciej:

LGTM, My first impression of this patch is also confusing about the
ordering of arguments for reg_class_subset_p, but after I double
checked that with gdb and read the comment above the
reg_class_subset_p, I think this change is right.

Thanks!
