Wide widgets in Customizer fail set max-height on wrong container for Text and Media widgets

The Text widget and Media widgets put their controls outside of the .widget-content element since it gets replaced with fields from the server with each save, and since these widgets have JS-managed fields this eliminates the need to re-initialize the fields (with a flicker) every time the widget is saved.

For “wide widgets” in the Customizer, the widget is positioned in a way that it can be floated over the preview for more room. However, the Text and Media widgets when extended (and wide) will currently appear too tall because the max-height is still set on .widget-content when instead it needs to be set on the parent .form element.

Easy way to reproduce the problem is to add an mu-plugin with the following:

require_once ABSPATH . '/wp-includes/widgets/class-wp-widget-text.php';

class Extended_Text_Widget extends WP_Widget_Text {
        function __construct() {
                $this->id_base = 'extended_text';
                $this->name = __( 'Extended Text' );
                $this->option_name = 'widget_' . $this->id_base;
                $this->widget_options['description'] = __( 'Extended arbitrary text.' );
                $this->control_options['id_base'] = $this->id_base;
add_action( 'widgets_init', function() {
        register_widget( 'Extended_Text_Widget' );
} );

If you add this widget in the Customizer, you'll see it takes up the entire vertical space instead of just the space needed for the editor.
