No specific reason. Just an arbitrary max value that we won't hit right
now or in the future.

Okay, I'll make it 2 here and will increase it to 3 in the next patch
when I introduce injection types for the interrupts.

Hmm. That should work. Will simplify it in the next version.
I think I had a NULL in flags_options[] to denote the invalid option.
With your simplification, that can be removed. I'll make that change too.

And the 'cnt' value that I used won't be necessary. So, will remove that
from __set_inj() definition as well.

With the change to MAX_FLAG_OPT_SIZE to 2 (or 3 depending on the max
size), this check is
really an error check.

Shall I make err = -EINVAL by default and return that here if the
condition is not satisfied?

Thanks,
-Aravind.
