Mind you, the code itself if pretty horrid.
Looks like it is aligning to 32 bytes, easier done by:
pqp = (void *)((unsigned long)vp + 31 & ~31);
(and there's a roundup macro to obfuscate it somewhere.)
But I'd also expect to see a matching '+ 31' in the size passed to kmalloc().
Not to mention a comment!
