Yes, and this is the statement I was looking for. IF(!) this really
is the case, then we don't have anything to worry about because new
kernel with old container will look at ->datasize, see 0 and return
DEFAULT_UCODE_TOTALSIZE and we're fine.

I've updated the patch with your additional explanation.

Thanks.
