Thanks, and a similar pattern occurs with these functions:

  'write_register_operand'
  'account_shadowed'
  'unaccount_shadowed'
  'mtrr_lookup_fixed_next'
  'pre_svm_run'
  'svm_vcpu_deliver_sipi_vector'

Although the compiler will do the right thing, use 'return void' expression
deliberately without grounds for exemption may annoy some CI pipelines.

If you need more cleanup or a new version to cover all these cases above,
just let me know.
