atlantic: Fix OOB read and write in hw_atl_utils_fw_rpc_wait

This bug report shows up when running our research tools. The
reports is SOOB read, but it seems SOOB write is also possible
a few lines below.

In details, fw.len and sw.len are inputs coming from io. A len
over the size of self->rpc triggers SOOB. The patch fixes the
bugs by adding sanity checks.

The bugs are triggerable with compromised/malfunctioning devices.
They are potentially exploitable given they first leak up to
0xffff bytes and able to overwrite the region later.

The patch is tested with QEMU emulater.
This is NOT tested with a real device.

Attached is the log we found by fuzzing.
