Hello lists,

From jail(3):

What exactly does “large enough” mean here? Is there a way to query the size of
the corresponding kernel buffers at runtime? Is there a maximum length à la
MAX_JAIL_PARAM_LEN that the string representations of the returned parameters
are guaranteed to be shorter than?

I’m currently implementing a rust wrapper[1] around the jail(2) interface, and 
not sure how large buffers for the string parameters I’m querying with jail_get
jail_set have to be.
