This is surprising as I got total: 0 errors, 0 warnings, 0 checks, 10 lines checked.

Anyhow, I'll submit as suggested.

Best,

This is not formatted correctly, the final closing ')' should end the
previous line, like this:

       if (hso_net->net &&
           hso_net->net->reg_state == NETREG_REGISTERED)
