Now there is no guarantee that the buffer is null terminated.

You need to use strscpy(ver... 16) or add ver[15] = '\0';

Why do you set the result to something instead of just returning that
value? The kstrtou8() checks above just return value directly...

If you use a return you can save yourself all the else branches.
