Subject[BUG] in drivers/char/joystick/magellan.c

Without the patch below, the \0 terminating the string is written
anywhere. nibbles[] would be even better, I guess.
Can you check for stupidity on my side?


But this is not to say that the main benefit of Linux and other GPL
software is lower-cost. Control is the main benefit--cost is secondary.
