Thanks Andy! for the comments.

I could just return idx value at the end of the for loop. I will remove the arr_size variable.

Just wanted to have all uninitialized variables declared before initialized ones. I will just leave this out in v4.

Sure, I will make this change in v4

Thought adding a label will help not to have multiple kfree() in the same function (one here at the check and one at the end of the for loop) I will add a return.

Good point! I missed it. I will use the arr_size here to iterate.
