I don't disagree with your logic, but we regularly get patches to
convert errno checks to drop the direct comparison because that is the
"preferred kernel style". Arguably, we should be explicit in all
cases as that avoids all confusion. With that in mind, my original
point stands. Why have a type when comparisons against valid settings
for that type produce errors?
