Great! Sorry for me not doing it on time. I was away from my laptop and internet
last day to do that. I saw your message about the sparse detecting the problems
while I was on my way to outskirts and was going to fix them today either in a
new version of the patchset or sending follow-up patches. But you already fixed
the problems. Thank you very much for doing that for me.
