This matches what I can see in the old vendor driver, so:

My understanding of the vendor driver is that this "len" is only used
for "raw" access (my own words: any access that doesn't use the HW ECC
As a future improvement (no need to update re-send this patch) it
would be great to have a #define with a meaningful name for
"GENMASK(13, 0)" (maybe something like NFC_CMD_RAW_LENGTH) as it's
used in multiple places now
