> Checks on `addr_len` and `usax->sax25_ndigis` are insufficient.
> ax25_sendmsg() can go out of bounds when `usax->sax25_ndigis` equals to 7
> or 8. Fix it.
> It is safe to remove `usax->sax25_ndigis > AX25_MAX_DIGIS`, since
> `addr_len` is guaranteed to be less than or equal to
> `sizeof(struct full_sockaddr_ax25)`
