Ok. I will fix it.

I do not know this part was written by Russel.

Currently function is used in a way if sfp subsystem should switch to
byte IO. So if we are already using byte IO we are not going to do
switch and therefore false is returning.

At least this is how I understood why 'return false' is there.

Originally I wanted to use just four memcmp() calls but Russel told me
that code should be generic (in case in future initial block size would
be changed, which is a good argument) and come up with this code with
for-loop.

So I think loop is needed.

You are right, if code is generic this needs to be fixed to prevent
reading reading undefined memory. I will replace it by proposed min(...)
call.
