This particular error was if a device wasn't found. It's a codepath I don't
really know can happen from the ioctl, but wanted to be sure. I'll just remove
this error message.

Yep got it.

I wasn't aware access_ok was handled in copy_from/to. I'll remove this.

I mentioned this in the other mail, but the thing is buffer size is not consistent
from machine to machine.

It's convenient that this change happened now because otherwise there would
have been assumptions about it always being 4k that needed to be thrown away.

I did..

$ ~/src/linux/scripts/checkpatch.pl 0013-platform-x86-dell-smbios-wmi-
introduce-userspace-int.patch
total: 0 errors, 0 warnings, 241 lines checked

0013-platform-x86-dell-smbios-wmi-introduce-userspace-int.patch has no obvious
style problems and is ready for submission.

Thanks, I see what I should do instead, I'll make changes.

Thanks, I'll add locking.
