Hi Andrew,

you are right, the current code is pretty pointless.

I would suggest to use phy_find_first(). Even though that changes the intent
of the code, it doesn't change its current semantics. Plus, apparently
the intent wasn't important enough to actually test it. Add to it the
resulting simplification, and I think we have a clear winner.

Should I submit a separate patch, or replace my patch with v2 ?
And which way to go ?

Thoughts ?

Guenter
