I have some trivial issue below, otherwise it looks good, thank you.

Here we process a list of statically allocated structures, and while for
the kernel space it should be ok, but please write a huge comment which
will explain that it relies on the kernel stack nature about unified
addressing between processes.

Please also drop this kind of comment prefix, it does not really tells
anything about function, but below part does (as well as next function's
kerneldoc one).
