[ Upstream commit 8e41cae64b08fe2e86a9ffb88b295c6b4b3a3322 ]

gcc warning this:

drivers/net/ieee802154/ca8210.c:730:10: warning:
 comparison is always false due to limited range of data type [-Wtype-limits]

'len' is u8 type, we get it from buf[1] adding 2, which can overflow.
This patch change the type of 'len' to unsigned int to avoid this,also fix
the gcc warning.
