This driver use tabs for indentation consistently so please stick to
that style. That should also amount to a smaller patch (and less noise
in the logs, e.g. for git blame).

So this now depends on the new helper returning an errno on short
transfers which gets mapped to -EIO by usb_translate_errors(). This
works currently (and with my suggested change to use -EREMOTEIO) but
could possibly lead to subtle regressions later.

I don't think we need to worry about it, but just wanted to highlight
the kind of impact these changes can have.

Note that this change also replaces a single memdup with a memdup+memcpy
for each iteration. But as this helper is used rarely (e.g. probe,
resume and disconnect), and hopefully the retries are exceptions, the
overhead could be acceptable.
