Indeed. I've checked, and the second commit was just cosmetic (silence
a warning reported by sparse for ptr == 0 introduced in the first one).

The context is minimally different (original commit introduces a jump
to a label whose context has changed). I tend to think that the merged
fix has less changes of being incorrectly applied, but given their
triviality we could very well merge the original ones instead, and
keep initial authorship BTW.
