Is there a good reason for not using chip->data_buf and allocating a
new buffer here?

I'd recommend moving this info_buf in the priv chip struct, otherwise
you'll have to protect nfc->info_buf with a lock to prevent an already
register chip from using this pointer while you're reallocating the
buffer. Also, I think you have a memleak here.
