Here is a first run of the change. Please let me know if I am totally off. RFC. :)

Three things on Todo list:

* We need to check that we are using less than the allocated size of the buffer (used > size). (we are allocating a big buffer, so not sure if necessary)
* Need to check with the scripts if they are working.
* I used a loop for pr_alert(). I am not sure this is right, there should be a better way for printing large buffers

If the overall structure is ok I will go ahead and check how the scripts are handling these changes.
