That's a long time ago ;-)
I asked because to the casual reader, it's far from obvious why the platform
device use-time is different from the platform device's resources use-time.

Fine for me.

OK, your main motivation is to get rid of the zero-check.
Leaving it could indeed trigger some janitorial changes by people who
don't understand the code at all, so it's good to avoid that ;-)

Thanks!
