Exactly that's what I proposed. Sorry for not explaining myself :)

But the consumer should know the size it needs for it's buffer and if not it
should be able to decide on it's own how much space it needs. If he get's a
-ENOMEM he implicitly knows that he has to increase the buf_size. Now the size
depends on how many command he has pending and wasn't able to write to the cmdq_pkt.
