Static analyzer of clang found a dead store which appears to be a bug in
reading count of items in SEQOF field, only the lower byte of word is
stored. This may lead to corrupted read and communication shutdown.

The bug has been in the module since it's first inclusion into linux
kernel.

This looks correct to me. The problem is without practical consequence
though, the largest amount of sequence-of members we parse is 30.

Applied, thanks.
