This does not really conform to [1].


"Declare KSY_NAME_LEN, which describes the maximum length for a kernel
symbol read by kallsyms from the input. In read_symbol(), define the
buffer to be of length "KSY_NAME_LEN + 1", which includes the terminator

would be better.

You must split this then into two patches:

1. A patch that re-defines the length with KSYM_NAME_LEN, i.e.
#define KSYM_NAME_LEN 499
2. A patch which increases the size and reasoning for that.

Right now bundles two separate changes, which does not conform to [2].
