I don't know what you did or did not imply. When somebody states that a patch 
is ugly, I tend to assume that they dislike the form rather than the essence.

My chief concerns are that, on the one hand, other system calls may also 
exhibit the bug, and on the other hand, contribs may be affected as well. In 
other words, I am concerned not that the patch is ugly, but that does not 
solve the problem(s).
