buf->length is first copied in from user space and security-checked. The
second copy issued by copy_from_user copies it again. The data in user
space may have been modified by malicious users. filter_callback()
further uses the potentially modified data. The fix avoids the
double-fetch that overwrites buf->length.

So, we already did a check and copied not more than we would expect.
