So change it when that later changes actually come in. And even then
having the checks outside the function is a lot more obvious.

The problem is that each of these issues might appear minor on their
own. But combined a lot of the coding style choices lead to code that
is more suitable an obsfucated code contest than the Linux kernel as
trying to understand even just a few places requires jumping through
tons of helpers with misleading names and spread over various files.
