Perhaps nitpicking but it might be better to set ret to -ENOMEM here
and avoid initializing it during the declarations.

There's no bug in the current form since ret is never assigned to
outside of the error paths, but the unwritten assumption that ret keeps
its original value throughout the loop seems like a bit of a landmine
w.r.t. future maintainance.
