How about this:
#define MAX_NAME_LEN (4 + DIV_ROUND_UP(NR_CPUS, 255))

Actually, led_trigger_register_simple() will take care of kzalloc()
failure. And if so trig will be NULL. I think it's unnecessary to
check trig == NULL here and unwind any passed registrations, since
those registration failure on for one CPU has no relationship with
other successful registrations.

So it is necessary for us to check trig==NULL in ledtrig_cpu().

Hmmm, looks like I need setup an lock to make sure
led_trigger_register_simple() and trig assignment will not completed
before any usage.

ledtrig_cpu() will check trig==NULL, I don't think there is this
issue, isn't it?

OK, I will move it out as one line kernel message.

Thanks for reviewing,
