I have to wonder whether this is the right way, or whether a
size-agnostic function like put_user() is the right way. put_user() is
certainly easier to use.

I definitely did not like it either.
But it was the best that came to my mind ...
The main purpose of this code was to show what I wanted to do.
Once more, thanks for pointing out a better way to do it.
