Indeed.   I am, however, somewhat surprised since I ran the patch thru 
checkpatch before posting it and no errors or warnings were reported.  Is

Ah yes, an idiosyncrasy of mine in preferring do while over for loops 
especially when I 'know' the initial test will pass.  Whatever is the 
preferred idiom for the kernel is fine with me.
