Hi Himadri,

I think the proper fix is to check
usbnet_read_cmd/usbnet_read_cmd_nopm return value instead.
Memsetting data helps to fix the warning at hand, but the device did
not send these 0's and we use them as if the device did send them.

Perhaps we need a separate helper function (of a bool flag) that will
fail on incomplete reads. Maybe even in the common USB layer because I
think we've seen this type of bug lots of times and I guess there are
dozens more.
