How is the user expected to check the result of this code?

AFAICT -ENOMEM is returned if either kmalloc() fails or
the user buffer is too short?
Looks pretty hard to detect which.

I've not looked at the effect of all the patches, but setting
'ret = -ENOMEM' and breaking the loop when the array is too
small would simplify things.
