Hi, thanks for your patch.

It appears this is a part of a series of patches (at least this one and
one to the ice driver) - please send as one series, with a cover letter
explanation.

Please justify how this is a bug and how this is found / reproduced.

I'll respond separately to the ice driver patch as I don't know this
hardware and it's limits, but I suspect that you've tried to fix a bug
where there was none. (It seems like something a code scanner might find
and be confused about)

you can't declare variables in the middle of a code flow in C, did you
compile this?
