i borrowed this allocation logic from IIO core [iio_device_alloc()];

i may be stupid, but i still don't understand how to use overflow.h or what to
get from it;
the checks in there seem to be a bit too much for what's needed here;
or maybe there is something else in some newer linux-tree?
or maybe an example of how it's used?
