If we're C programmers, why use the non-standard statement-expression
at all? And split it onto three lines when it's just a single one?

But whatever. This series has gotten way too much bike-shedding
anyway. I think it should just be applied, since it does remove lines
of code overall. I'd even possibly apply it to mainline, but it seems
to be against linux-next.
