Does the caller even have a valid reason to give a bigger buffer len?

I mean I'm still thinking defensively here but maybe the only thing that
would happen here with a bigger buffer is if the kmalloc() would fail,
leading to eventual failure of the migration.

If the code limits the allocation to some sane max length, the migration
won't fail even if userspace gives it too big values...


Good mailing practices for 400: avoid top-posting and trim the reply.
