commit faab50984fe6636e616c7cc3d30308ba391d36fd upstream.

Andrey Konovalov reports that fuzz testing with syzkaller causes a
KASAN warning in gadgetfs:

Indeed, there is a comment saying that the value of len is restricted
to a 16-bit integer, but the code doesn't actually do this.

This patch fixes the warning.  It replaces the comment with a
computation that forces the amount of data copied from the user in
ep0_write() to be no larger than the wLength size for the control
transfer, which is a 16-bit quantity.
