To avoid redundant check in the loop, we can use strnlen_user_nofault() out of
the loop. Something like below.

...
	u8 c;

	if (IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_NON_OVERLAPPING_ADDRESS_SPACE) &&
	    (unsigned long)addr < TASK_SIZE) {
		return strnlen_user_nofault((__force u8 __user *)addr, MAX_STRING_SIZE);

	do {
		ret = probe_kernel_read(&c, (u8 *)addr + len, 1);
		len++;
	} while (c && ret == 0 && len < MAX_STRING_SIZE);
...

This must work because we must not have a string that continues across
kernel space and user space.

Thank you,
