    IMHO Having a function to deal with the overflow of a multiplication and
    then do an allocation based on the result is a conflation of two different
    things that need to be separate. kcalloc only exists because there is
    an ancient user space function that somehow got a second parameter instead
    of just using the same as malloc().
