>  - Userspace wants to write a string with `len` bytes, not counting the
>    terminating NULL, so we should allocate `len+1` bytes. It looks like the
>    current code relied on having a nullbyte directly behind `kern_buff`,
>    which happens to work reliably as long as `len` isn't one of the kmalloc
>    size classes.
>  - strncpy_from_user() is completely wrong here; userspace is giving us a
>    (not necessarily null-terminated) buffer and its length.
>    strncpy_from_user() is for cases in which we don't know the length.
>  - Don't let broken userspace allocate arbitrarily big kmalloc allocations.
> 
> Just use memdup_user_nul(), which is designed precisely for things like
> this.
