static code checkers being unhappy with type mismatch
automatic type conversion is ok if necessary but in this
case it simply is not as the ch_close_delay is only being
used in this one place so why not do it type clean ?
I'll turn the question around - what reason would there be to
go through type conversion if it is not needed ?
