I misread the code here: I thought that cur was assigned the
"compressed" message length (in the range 0..7) here, but that's not
true, as slim_slicecodefromsize returns an "uncompressed" number. Thus
cur is a "quantized"[1] version of msg->num_bytes.

In any case, cur is only assigned and not used, as the code currently
is.

I agree. I don't know how it *might* be used, because I haven't read the
SLIMbus spec, but it is unused here.

Another problem solved by deleting slim_slicecodefromsize :-)

(As a small side-note, I think slim_slicesize and slim_slicecodefromsize
are named backwards: I would call sl, as used above, a "slice code",
because it encodes the message length)

I think you should document this in the comment to help readers.
