An even better practice is to focus on what's important.

You could, for example, review the original patches again that needed this
fixup, to make sure that nothing similar lurks in them. That would seem to
me certainly more meaningful than harping on POSIX semantics in a context
where they do not actually matter.

Ciao,
Johannes
