Can the part that uses the output of snprintf instead of strlen be used?

Your comment regarding memory fragmentation is ofcourse valid in a sense
there will be fragmentation since there is allocated too much memory in
the first place. But more interestingly can only happen when there is
significant concurrency. More importantly why would fragmentation be worse
than reporting more free memory over time? Is this tested, if not, can we?
