I will make the edits, this will definitely save the kzalloc in this code

Since event_data->type is used to distinguish what the template field
 should contain.
Removing the type and subsequent check in the template_init,
 buf template fmt will result in the whole event_Data structure
being added to the log, which is not the expected output.
For buffer entries, the buf templet fmt will contains the buffer itself.

Will update the documentation.
