Will update accordingly.

When matches is non-NULL, both the sub-functions are limited by
matches_len and as such count_graph <= matches_len.

As such matches_len >= 0.

In the event that the originally passed matches_len was 0, then
count_graph will be 0 and matches_len will remain 0.

I therefor don't see that this additional check changes things.

We covered the case of matches && (matches_len || !matches_len) above.

For the case of !matches && matches_len, this added conditional would
cause matches_len to be extra ignored by keeping it at 0, but per
kernel-doc and implementation we ignore all other values already.


Note that this is in contrast from vsnprintf() where the code will
continue to produce results, only store the first "matches_len"
entires and return the final count.

Unfortunately we can't follow such semantics here, instead it is clearly
documented in the kernel-doc that @matches_len is ignored when @matches
is NULL.


So unless I'm missing something I don't see what you gain over keeping
the check on only matches.

I looked briefly at adding some kunit tests for this, but was discourage
by the prospect of building up the graphs to run the tests against.
