Hi Tianfei,

 From the CI capacity perspective, it would be better to have a way to verify 
Coverity fixes before merging them.
For most of the Coverity fixes we can tell that patch is fixing issue by review, 
but for the non trivial cases like this, a way to verify patch, even it is 
manual etc.., would be nice, otherwise it turns out to try and see Coverity fixes.
And as far as I remember we had in the past that a Coverity fix result two more 
new Coverity issues :)
