Hi Leyi,

Can you please put some justification to the commit log, why return value can be 
ignored instead of handling it?

Technically this patch doesn't put you in a better place, still you are not 
checking the return value, indeed it is worse since it is silenced and even 
coverity can't warn you anymore.
