Sorry about that. After some thought, I feel this is a special case in
replacing simple_strtoul to kstrtoul. simple_strtoul can give back a
pointer to the end of the parsed string, whereas kstrtoul does not
give any thing of that kind. In our case, temp is the end of the
parsed cp string.

To replace simple_strtoul to kstrtoul, we need to know the length of the
unsigned long int returned and shift the cp pointer by that length to
get temp. This might involve a bit of code refactoring.
