My first reply to this patch asked for a sparse warning on this line to
also be fixed.  After xiaojiangfeng followed up with a different patch
to try to resolve the issues with this line of code, I see that the
sparse warning was not caused by my first conjecture and this patch
is the correct one to apply.

I will pursue the cause of the sparse warning myself separately.
