acpigen: Add new function acpigen_pop_len

acpigen_patch_len doesn't really need its argument: length always includes
everything from length bytes to current pointer and never bytes before it.
Hence just infer all the info implicitly.

Argument is wrong in several places through the codebase but ACPI parsing
is lax enough to swallow incorrect SSDT. After this function is used throughout
the codebase, these issues will be fixed.
