Broken spelling in each of those comment blocks. Are these
comments write-only?

Could be a single line.

This is not the standard pattern of how we do error paths ...

Spelling.

ugly line break.

> +late_initcall(kcmp_cookie_init);

any particular reason why this needs to be a late initcall?

Needs buy-in from the kbuild guys.

Why is asm/unistd.h not good?

Why is a syscall that takes long arguments defined and called
with int and then cast over to long again?

Visibly stray whitespaces.

this is main(), what's wrong with the standard pattern of return
ret?

I don't know whether this code is correct, but the high amount
of basic cleanliness problems makes me worry about that.

Thanks,
