Thanks. This is one of the typos I make very consistently.

The thing is that this driver supports two ways of creating the block devices.
On module load it creates by default a single block device and it uses g_bs
as its block size, but then it also has configfs based interface that allows
to create more block devices.

The default is taken also from g_bs but then user can change it (
via those NULLB_DEVICE_ATTR wrappers)
I changed the behavior slightly, that now if user supplies bad value,
it will be rejected instead of finding closest valid value.

In addition to that there is very small bug that didn't bother to fix in
this series (but I will in next one). The bug is that when null_validate_conf
fails, it return value is overriden with -ENOMEM, which gives the user a wrong
error message.

Thanks for the review!

Best regards,
