Oops, you are absolutely right. GCC is warning about those variables
being unused, but it is clearly wrong. They are used and are indeed very
important for decoding the input data as you correctly highlighted.

Thanks for your time and sorry for sending this across.
Will resend another patch just removing 'err'.
