I think something like the below should do, but then I didn't really
think much about it, my thoughts went like:

... *shees* that's ugly
... that error path already does a loop
... what the problem is!? -- reread changelog
... err_cpu == cpu is placed wrong!


So I replied and marked read.. waiting to either hear if there's a good
reason to do ugly or find a new (tested) patch in my inbox.. :-)
