get_registers() was recently modified to use usb_control_msg_recv() which does
not return partial reads. IOW you'll either get negative value or
sizeof(node_id). Since it is good to be paranoid i'd convert the above check
to:

if (ret == sizeof(node_id)) {

and fail in any other case. Apart from this minor detail the rest of the patch
looks good to me.
