Sorry I was on vacation and missed this earlier. The reason we don't
check for errors in the 2nd part is that the 2nd page may not be
present on some eeproms.

But I think the patch is fine because we return the proper length in
.get_module_info(). So we will now return error only if the user
specifies an invalid length, which is fine. Thanks.
