Naw, just leave it the way it is. I didnt follow cmd_start down deep enough to realize we reset
the position on cmd_start, so there is no way for my scenario to happen. We'll never change IO_BUFFER_LENGTH
to something small. If someone wants to write a bug in their custom kernel, it's not our problem.
