Minor nits, otherwise LGTM:

nit: since old kernels don't report this user space has to deal with it
     not being present so I'd be tempted to only report it if timeout
     is not 0

nit: did we ever report cmd == UPDATE_STATUS and total == 0?
     could this cause a division by zero in some unsuspecting
     implementation? Perhaps we should pass 1 here?
