I did consider simple_strtoul() initially. Unfortunately, it is obsolete (below
line 81). AFAIR, the patch would not be able to pass the check_patch script when
this function is used.

75 /**
76 * simple_strtoul - convert a string to an unsigned long
77 * @cp: The start of the string
78 * @endp: A pointer to the end of the parsed string will be placed here
79 * @base: The number base to use
80 *
81 * This function is obsolete. Please use kstrtoul instead.
82 */
83 unsigned long simple_strtoul(const char *cp, char **endp, unsigned int base)
84 {
85 return simple_strtoull(cp, endp, base);
86 }
