Sure, will replace.

Sure, will replace.

Right and also this looks more compact as well. Initially though about
it but then was apprehensive about the style in #ifdef { } #endif code
block inside the function. After this change, the resulting patch also
clears checkpatch.pl test. Will do the change.
