I also think I'm not being as clear as I should... I understand
that you trust the input; I'm say that for correctness sake you
should specify a output size which leaves room for the NUL char.

I can't say I know this code very well so I could be wrong, but it's
what we do inside usb_string() for example. Can someone who knows
the code check if we should do something like this:
