When writing to node_desc sysfs using echo a new line symbol will be
stored at the end of the string, avoid that by dropping the new line
symbol and also make sure to return -EINVAL when the supplied string is
bigger then IB_DEVICE_NODE_DESC_MAX.

Why do we want to do this? AFAIK technically new line is valid in a
node description.

This makes sense though

Why strlen? The buf is count bytes long.

And if it is zero bytes this buffer underflows

What was the point of switching away from memcpy?

Self-Nack, please drop this patch, I didn't do a good job here.
