While doing some internal testing, I noticed that some of the IPE files
in securityfs (ipe/audit, ipe/enforce, and ipe/policies/*/active) are
including the NULL terminator (size of 2) in the securityfs file
contents. This is not common to do and this busybox build that my test
machine is using even has some trouble when displaying those files with
cat. I see all three instances of this pattern with this command:

$ git grep simple_read_from_buffer\(.*,\ 2\) security/ipe

I think going to a length of 1 would be best.
