    Thank you very much for reviewing the patch. As per your suggestion, I
    have checked
    the scenario is fb_set_cmap() and the use of 'int start' and 'cmap->start'.

    IMHO, that scenario doesn't fall under the comparison of unsigned int
    < 0. That scenario
    looks similar to the below given code to me:
    #include <stdio.h>

    main ()
    unsigned int u_int = -1;
    int s_int = 0;
    s_int = u_int;
    if (s_int < 0)
    printf ("s_int is less than 0\n");
    return 0;

    Please let me know your comments.

    Best Regards,
