Hi Robin, see comments inline.

I tested this change on its own, and it seemed sufficient to make the crash
disappear.

This function isn't part of the firmware load path, so how can it be related
to fixing the firmware crash?

If this is an unrelated efficiency saving, maybe it should go into its
own patch?
Maybe we want bugfix patches to be as small and specific as possible, so they
can more easily be backported to older kernels?
