In fact, get_config returns void, so userspace can easily get
trash if it passes incorrect parameters by mistake, there is
no way for userspace to find out whether that is the case :(

Any objections to returning the # of bytes copied, or -1
on error?

Yes but spec says config space can be bigger than specified by features:

Drivers MUST NOT limit structure size and device configuration space size. Instead, drivers SHOULD only
check that device configuration space is large enough to contain the fields necessary for device operation.
