Subject[PATCH v2 3/6] firmware: arm_scmi: Remove extra check for invalid length message responses
scmi_xfer_get_init ensures both transmit and receive buffer lengths are
within the maximum limits. If receive buffer length is not supplied by
the caller, it's set to the maximum limit value. Receive buffer length
is never modified after that. So there's no need for the extra check
when receive transmit completion for a command essage.

Further, if the response header length is greater than the prescribed
receive buffer length, the response buffer is truncated to the latter.
