Subject: Re: [PATCH] rxrpc: recvmsg: use BUG_ON instead of if condition
 followed by BUG

Please combine these related patches fixing BUG in rxrpc into a patch
set with proper annotation,

Also, can any of these BUG_ONs be replaced by WARN_ONs? Warnings are
generally preferable to crashing the system.
