I suggest to take another look at a provided tag “Fixes”.
To which commit would you like to refer to for the proposed adjustment of
the function “mac_sonic_platform_probe”?

Would you find numbered labels unwanted according to a possible interpretation
related to “GW-BASIC” identifier selection?

Can programming preferences evolve into the direction of “say what the goto does”?
