I just concern using kmalloc() in the event handler. For fetching user
memory which can be swapped out, that is true. But most of the cases,
we can presume that it exists on the physical memory.

I'd like to ask the opinions of Srikar and Oleg.

BTW, you'd better add to patch description why previously this is
not needed, and your series needs it too. :)

Thank you,
