Like the first patch, please don't add such comments.

Please reword this comment.  The issue is that this code path has no
mechanism to signal errors upstream.  It isn't about a specific type
of error condition in particular, it's about error handling capabilites
in general.

Remove specific reference to promiscuity overflow, these are generic error
handling issues here regardless of the types of errors that the down
calls could encounter.

Likewise.
