Looking better!

But a few minor things below:

Why ENOMEM?  vnt_init_registers() should return a proper error code,
based on what went wrong, not true/false.  So fix that up first, and
then you can do this patch.

See, your one tiny coding style fix is turning into real cleanups, nice!

Same here, vnt_key_init_table() should return a real error value, and
then just return that here.

Like this, that is the correct thing.

So, this is now going to be a patch series, fixing up those two
functions (and any functions they call possibly), and then this can be
the last patch of the series.
