Well, the checksum thing is the really curious one (particularly since
someone seems to temporarily have forgotten the existence if the &&
I messed up my example, but my point was that if you check
bsm_s == bsm_e it is a bit pointless to check bsm_s != 0 _and_ bsm_e != 0,
because both will give the same unless your CPU is broken...
Now, in addition I notice that another check is bsm_s != inb_s which can
hardly be true if all are 0, can it?
So that would result in this check:
if (bsm_s == bsm_e && inb_s == inb_e && bsm_s != inb_s)
Which... well... looking at the original code means that that whole
"checksum" thing is just a very elaborate nop...
