It prevents an unnecessary WARN.

If the first redistributor has rvpeid=1, vlpis=0, direct_lpi=1, and the others
have rvpeid=0, vlpis=0, direct_lpi=0. At the end of iteration, without the
WARN if statement, you end up wth rvpeid=0, vlpis=0, direct_lpi=0. I.e. it's
done the right thing. In this use-case the WARN doesn't achieve anything other
than give the user a pointless WARN. If the WARN was moved to after iteration
then the WARN wouldn't fire.

I have no idea how likely this use-case is.
