Btw.:
1. if size == 10 and snprintf returns 9 (without NULL)
   then n == 10 (with NULL), so isn't it enough (here and above):
 
	if ((size < 0) || (i >= num_envp))

2. shouldn't there be (here and above):
 
		envp[--i] = NULL;

Maybe I miss something, but it seems kobject_uevent_env copies
pointers from envp instead of buffers' contents.
