Dave has already applied the patch. So I will send a follow up
patch that fixes the original issue to check for the return type.

The patch to optimize this at the correct location (second part
of your concern) can be a separate patch that will send as a follow up
to the PRP series as that code touches this as well. So better to
optimize this after the PRP series IMO.

I plan to fix similar issue in the PRP series as well ( not
checking for return type) and re-spin. Don't want to delay merge
of PRP series for this optimization that can be addressed
separately as I have said.
