While static analysis can be useful, I don't think these
specific conversions are generally useful.

Perhaps it would be more useful to convert the string
duplication or snprintf logic to kstrdup/kasprintf


        if (num_queues == 1) {
                xspath = kzalloc(strlen(dev->otherend) + 1, GFP_KERNEL);
                if (!xspath) {
                        xenbus_dev_fatal(dev, -ENOMEM,
                                         "reading ring references");
                        return -ENOMEM;
                strcpy(xspath, dev->otherend);
        } else {
                xspathsize = strlen(dev->otherend) + xenstore_path_ext_size;
                xspath = kzalloc(xspathsize, GFP_KERNEL);
                if (!xspath) {
                        xenbus_dev_fatal(dev, -ENOMEM,
                                         "reading ring references");
                        return -ENOMEM;
                snprintf(xspath, xspathsize, "%s/queue-%u", dev->otherend,

could be simplified to something like:

        if (num_queues == 1)
                xspath = kstrdup(dev->otherend, GFP_KERNEL);
                xspath = kasprintf(GFP_KERNEL, "%s/queue-%u",
                                   dev->otherend, queue->id);
        if (!xspath)
