The fuller discussion is in the thread where you first attempted to fix an
issue with the line of code and I reported a sparse error against this line.

After digging deeper, your first patch is valid, removing min() here is not
the correct approach.  I will add my Reviewed-by to the first patch and I
will pursue the sparse warning separately.

Thanks,

Frank
