I missed the opportunity to update my commit message.

I've sent my initial version of the patch (with the same wording) on
5th, January, 2014:

http://mid.gmane.org/3d9591f81e62a78a726721c8052b3910870db35e.1388952061.git.ydroneaud@opteya.com
http://lkml.kernel.org/r/3d9591f81e62a78a726721c8052b3910870db35e.1388952061.git.ydroneaud@opteya.com

The patch was sent again on March, 11:

http://lkml.kernel.org/r/baab31b572b216d13f2149bdf07e0f79a1bae660.1394532336.git.ydroneaud@opteya.com
http://mid.gmane.org/baab31b572b216d13f2149bdf07e0f79a1bae660.1394532336.git.ydroneaud@opteya.com

And another time, on June, 1st:

http://lkml.kernel.org/r/2c6ab28980f0007ea3b9afa7ecd7497806a6a451.1401630396.git.ydroneaud@opteya.com
http://mid.gmane.org/2c6ab28980f0007ea3b9afa7ecd7497806a6a451.1401630396.git.ydroneaud@opteya.com

So as you can see, my patch predate yours:

http://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=48149e9d3a7e924010a0daab30a6197b7d7b6580

But I have to apologize: I haven't noticed your patch was merged between
my previous submission and the current one. My bad.

I will update the commit message to remove my obsolete comment on the
input parameter check.

Thanks again for review and testing.

Regards.
