well I'm not against using the new functions but if you do this change please
try to have a look why those were introduced.

Ugh, the old code was ugly (casting u8* to unsigned long*) but you did not
really improve it although the new functions were introduced for cases like
this. You should use kstrtou8() here, I think.
It would also be nice if you could add range checks for the value entered as the
behavior to -EINVAL on values > 255 but accepting too big values that are <= 255
is not very consistent. Okay, as I know that doing this right would be difficult
I'll accept this patch without them or without them being 100% accurate.

Same here.

Same here. And the &buf[0] is somewhat misleading, can you please correct it to
be just buf?

Same as above.

Again this u8 thing.

Please try to use the correct functions (kstrtoint, ...) here too, basically you
should no longer have any need for casting pointers.


Thanks,
