The kretprobe::data_size is unsigned (size_t) but it is
used as 'data_size + sizeof(struct kretprobe_instance)'.
Thus, it can be smaller than sizeof(struct kretprobe_instance)
while allocating memory for the kretprobe_instance.

To avoid this issue, introduce a max limitation of the
kretprobe::data_size. 4KB per instance should be OK.

The above doesn't make sense.

data_size is unsigned but it is used as
 'data_size + sizeof(struct kretprobe_instance)'. 

What does that mean?

What can be smaller than sizeof(struct kretprobe_instance) and why does it
matter?

OK, what about this ?

The 'kprobe::data_size' is unsigned, thus it can not be negative.
But if user sets it enough big number (e.g. (size_t)-8), the result
of 'data_size + sizeof(struct kretprobe_instance)' becomes smaller than
sizeof(struct kretprobe_instance) or zero. In result, the kretprobe_instance
are allocated without enough memory, and kretprobe accesses outside of
allocated memory.

Thank you,
