Hi; Coverity points out an issue in this function (CID 1401700):

We call lock_user_string(), which can fail and return NULL
if the memory pointed to by addr isn't actually readable.
But we don't check for the error, so we can pass a NULL
pointer to write().

Also it looks a bit dodgy that we are passed in a
specific length value but we then go and look at the length
of the string, but we trust the specific length value over
the length of the string. If len is larger than the real
length of the string (including terminating NUL) then the
write() will read off the end of the string.
