Thanks, got it.

No need.
Usually we drop some "wired" headers (when we sure that one will
always include the other one, like module.h vs. init.h)

Here maybe not. Just a material to think about. If you can refactor
code to utilize them, good.

In C standard there is an integer promotion which allows you not to
use explicit casting in such cases.

The point is it's useless.
On the other hand, you have a lot of inconsistency with that style.

If license of the piece above is okay to use in kernel, then
definitely it would be better (even we might create a helper out of
it).
