Please do not apply this changes. It will change the code
flow differently. Check for NULl value in '(wid_list[index].val)' is
already presented. It has to proceed with the below flow instead of
returning from there.

Sorry, I too missed to see that scenario. As suggested, kmemdup can not be
used directly to replace kmalloc & memcpy in this case. The size used for
kmalloc is not equal to size of data copy in memcpy i.e kmalloc is done
for 1 byte extra to keep the NULL character. The direct replacement of
kmalloc with kmemdup is not applicable here.

"info_element" variable was removed in my previous submitted patchset.
Those changes are still not included in Greg's staging repo. Few changes
in this patch are already included in previous patchset,which might give
conflict. But few changes are not present which can be applied like
returning -ENOMEM in case of allocation failure.
