The Dfuse devices have no fixed length on this string, it depends on
the complexity of the memory map. With many memory segments the string
can theoretically get long. Future devices might have lots of memory
banks. The bootloader itself (if in flash) will typically mark its own
code location as read-only segments, and so on.

limit like 64 or 128. This macro may be used for any USB descriptor
string and I have not seen any limit on them other than the one I

Thanks for reviewing all the patches!
