Thanks for fixing this. Just a minor nitpick below..

It seems perf (and me too) prefers BUG_ON than assert:

  namhyung@sejong:perf$ git grep BUG_ON\( | wc -l
  55
  namhyung@sejong:perf$ git grep assert\( | wc -l
  16
  
It's not a big deal, though. I'm ok if others are happy with it.

Thanks,
Namhyung
