Could we make this min_t(uint, ...);

->max_vfs is type unsigned int. We take an unsigned long from sysfs.
We silently truncate it to an unsigned int.  Then we cast it to a
negative number and compare against 63 and take the minimum...

It's root only so it's not a problem but it's a hassle to audit.
