Actually Linux kernel already provide function "kernel_read_file_id_str()"
for secure access in "kernel_read_file.h".And, in "parse_exclude()"
function, there is no need for
"BUILD_BUG_ON(ARRAY_SIZE(kernel_read_file_str) <
ARRAY_SIZE(ignore_read_file_id))"
when access array by functon "kernel_read_file_id_str(j)".

This should stay to make sure kernel_read_file_str doesn't diverge from
the other two. However, maybe it should be tightened to:

	BUILD_BUG_ON(ARRAY_SIZE(kernel_read_file_str) - 1 ==
		     ARRAY_SIZE(ignore_read_file_id));

I feel funny about making these into function calls when we've already
validated the index, but yeah, that would be fine. Can you send a v2
with the earlier suggestion addressed?

Thanks!
