Thanks for such a positive response.

Such a view can be reasonable.
The change acceptance varies between involved contributors.

Such a choice depends also on your willingness to clarify and improve
the software situation by better commit messages.

I propose that you can offer patch series with two update steps (for example)
according to the affected function implementation.
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/tree/Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst?id=47cf1b422e6093aee2a3e55d5e162112a2c69870#n102

1. Add a missing function call for the completion of the desired resource clean-up.

2. Adjust a bit of exception handling code so that it can be better reused
   at the end of this function.

I am curious if you are going to answer (my) previous questions and suggestions
(in constructive ways).

Regards,
Markus
