Does he track this list? Or would you ask him? I might not be able to follow
the discussion yet.

I also removed the initialization. Now the compiler warns if any 
case branch does not set ret, making it more difficult to forget
setting it wherever it is needed.

I thought about this:

case A:
case B:
case C:
	ret = 0;
     goto out;

but I was not sure whether this reordering would be too intrusive for a
first patch. If you don't object, I will do that. I could also add a label
out0. The BUG() is probably good anyway to ensure no break is used

     }         /* end of switch */
	BUG();	/* we should never get here */

	ret = 0;

I will prepare a new patch later, probably not today. Just got some real
work to do.
