This seems wrong. Most drivers do not check regs.len in their get_regs()
handler (I'm not sure if there are any that do) and simply write as much
data as they have. Thus if userspace passes too short regs.len, this
would replace overflow of a userspace buffer for few drivers by overflow
of a kernel buffer for (almost) all drivers.

So while we should use the original regs.len from userspace for final
copy_to_user(), we have to allocate the buffer for driver ->get_regs()
callback with size returned by its ->get_regs_len() callback.
