Yuck, we expect user-space to tell us how long the string is. It may be worth a
comment that it isn't necessarily null-terminated, as that is surprising!

(I assume the DT's property length is enough to make that safe for the new
kernel to read).

Ah, because you haven't set the arch.dtb_buf pointer yet.

What about in patch 7 where you expect kimage_file_prepare_segments() to call
arch_kimage_file_post_load_cleanup() to free the arch.elf_headers? I'd expect
the free()ing to always happen in one place.


Thanks,
