Make sure to return -EINVAL when the supplied string is bigger then
the node_desc array.

So, while this is the preferred code, when I checked on how this all
works what I found was madness.

The desc.node_desc is not a string. It is an array of 64 bytes, where
all 64 bits can be valid without a null termination.

Code that accesses the array like:

drivers/infiniband/core/sysfs.c:        return sprintf(buf, "%.64s\n", dev->node_desc);

Is 'correct', while code like this:

drivers/infiniband/hw/bnxt_re/main.c:   return scnprintf(buf, PAGE_SIZE, "%s\n", rdev->ibdev.node_desc);

Is wrong, it could run past the end of the character array.

Obviously this is all insane. If I apply your patch then userspace
looses the ability to have a 64 character node description.

If you want to persue this then please fix the underlying issue - make
node_desc into an always null terminated string:
 - Increase the width to 65
 - Never use memcpy to manipulate it
 - Devices should set it from the mad/device array using
    scnprintf(dev->node_desc, sizeof(dev->node_desc), "%.64s\n", mad_desc)
   Perhaps this should be a helper function
 - Devices should read it into a MAD format using some approach
   zero fills
 - Get rid of all the .64 format strings

Thanks,
Jason
