This block of unreadable text is so nasty.

You could return directly if the msg = kmalloc() fails and pull
everything in one indent level.  It's normally more readable to
handle errors as soon as possible anyway.

Probably that's not enough to make a difference and we'd need to
introduce a new function.

Btw I don't know if utf16s_to_utf8s() counts the NUL char or not.
It feels like maybe we could end up with ->value_size equal to
HV_KVP_EXCHANGE_MAX_VALUE_SIZE + 1.
