Except that the original was more obvious at least for me.
I always prefer more readable code when the compiler might do
the optimization easily. But this is my personal taste.
I am fine with both variants.

Ah, this was on my request. INT_MAX is already used on many other
locations in vsnprintf() for this purpose.

An alternative is to fix all the other locations. We would need to
check if it is really safe. Well, I do not want to force Richard
to fix this historical mess. He already put a lot lot of effort
into fixing this long term issue.

Also this is more obvious and less error prone from my POV.
But I agree that it is redundant. I am not sure if this
function is used in some fast paths.

Again I am fine with both variants.
