Can we use more traditional pattern, i.e.
mutex_lock();
ret = ...;
if (ret) {
 ...
 mutex_unlock();
 goto ...;
}
mutex_unlock();

?

Wouldn't be slightly better to check for overflow beforehand

i < min(PAGE_SIZE / (UUID_STRING_LEN + 1), tb->nboot_acl)

and then simple

ret = sprintf(buf + ret, "%pUb", &uuids[i]);

?

for (i = 0; (s = strsep(&uuid_str, ",")) != NULL && i < tb->nboot_acl; i++) {
  size_t len = strlen(s);

  if (!len)
    continue;
...
}

?

Btw, nboot_acl can be 0, right? Perhaps check it first? (Or in other
words: which one is anticipated to be more frequent: nboot_acl = 0, or
string w/o any ',' in it?)

uuid_parse() does this check. No need to duplicate.
