Doh, thanks, yes. Seems worth considering a grammar rule for it.

Likewise.

This seems like another possible generic typo issue. But I would not resolve it
the way you did, in this particular case below num_test_devs represents the
number of already registered devs, before we increment. So the way to resolve
this would be:

	if (num_test_devs + 1 == INT_MAX)

I'll get this upstream, thanks!
