Looking at things further it is possible to extend the name of the service to
64 byte while keeping backward compatibility by looking up the size of @len
in function rpmsg_ns_cb(). From there work with an rpmsg_ns_msg or a new
rpmsg_ns_msg64, pretty much the way you did in your patch[1]. In fact the
approach is the same except you are using 2 arrays of 32 byte and I'm using one
of 64.

As Arnaud mentioned, is there an immediate need to support a 64-byte name? If
not than I suggest to move forward with this patch and address the issue when we
get there - at least we know there is room for extention. Otherwise I'll spin
off another revision but it will be bigger and more complex.

Thanks,
Mathieu
