Yes, struct si2168_cmd.args is an u8 array.
However, string literals such as "\xa0\x01" are char arrays.
memcpy() ignores the types altogether.

I can do that, even though it's obvious we're not writing
to args in the trivial cmd_setup() body.

You say that because of the "-1" arithmetic, I assume?

FWIW, there are 2 calls where it is not.
memcpy(cmd.args, &fw->data[(fw->size - remaining) + 1], len);
memcpy(cmd.args, &fw->data[fw->size - remaining], len);

Actually, the compiler warns if we pass an u8 array instead of
a char array. IMO, the type is actually a good thing, since it
warns for cases where we don't use a string literal.

I'll see what I can do...
