The commit message still needs some work. But there's no need to drag
out the process for a fix like this, so I'll rewrite the commit message
and reply to this email with the cleaned up version. Let me know if you
have any problems with that. You'll still be credited as the author.

For future kernel patches, please see "15) The canonical patch format"
of Documentation/SubmittingPatches and "5.4: PATCH FORMATTING AND
CHANGELOGS" of Documentation/development-process/5.Posting for more
information on how the commit message should be written.

Also, your email came across in base64 encoding. I'm not sure of the
reason for that or how to fix it.

Yes, size_t will work fine, as Linus confirmed.

I really appreciate the patch - thanks!
