[patch] USB: cxacru: fix an bounds check warning
From: Dan Carpenter
Date: Sat Jan 30 2016 - 09:35:37 EST
This is a privileged operation so it doesn't matter much. We use "tmp"
as an offset into an array. If it were invalid we could read out of
bounds and trigger an oops if the memory is not mapped. Plus it makes
static checkers complain.

This changes the behavior a little bit because in the original we could
give slightly invalid "len" values and the function would still work...
Please review it extra carefully to make sure it doesn't break
