Thanks for the patch.

My eyes are starting to glaze over a bit chasing down all of the
different kmalloc() code paths trying to ensure that this always does
the right thing based on size of the allocation and the different slab
allocators ... are we sure that this will always return NULL when (len
+ 1) is greater than KMALLOC_MAX_SIZE for the different slab allocator
configurations?
