yes we already prepared size changes 5-6 months back:

[PATCH 1/5] kallsyms: pass buffer size in sprint_* APIs

But at that time new API development(for replacement of seq_buf) was in progress and we decided to wait for that completion.

As I checeked these APIs are not pushed to mainline.

we will try to prepare new patch set for kallsym changes again
with seq_buf to take care of length argument.
