Shouldn't be very difficult to change this.

Will do on the null checks.  I figured buffer-length input parameters
were fairly pointless since both buffer sizes depend on
IPMI_MAX_K_G_LENGTH, but I guess it assures the caller will indeed think
about the sizes of the buffers they're passing.  I'll add those too.

Right, forgot to check that one.

If the null check is true, there's a continue, which skips the second
check entirely.  So whenever the second check is run, we know k_g[i] !=
'\0', so we only need to check if there was a null found before this
character.

That's correct.  I changed the other length messages to generic invalid
messages, but somehow that one slipped through.

Will do on this one.

I got those, but apparently I forgot to hit save on that particular
buffer.


Hopefully I'll have all these changes incorporated sometime later today.
Thanks for the review.
