Subject: [PATCH 2/2] arm:kvm remove len 8 for mmio read write buf

For arm 32 bit architecture, 8 bytes load/store operation in one instruction
will not be generated by compiler.

And before invoke mmio_read_buf, there is a piece of code:
"
                 len = run->mmio.len;
                 if (len > sizeof(unsigned long))
                         return -EINVAL;

		data = mmio_read_buf(run->mmio.data, len);
"

This piece code also tells that len variable does not exceeds 4 bytes.
So, remove 8 bytes assign in mmio_read_buf and mmio_write_buf.
