   I understand the issue.  The question is what is the
   result.  Bogus numbers do.. what?  Does the kernel crash or
   does the user think strange things while every thing just
   keeps on working?

It's a quality of implementation issue.

It is just one example of a place where we use these kinds
of assumptions to index tables and the like.
