Coverity complains because this NULL check is, effectively, a no-op. Coverity
sees a check for info_ptr != NULL so it infers that the programmer thinks that
info_ptr can be NULL. But then it sees that info_ptr is blindly dereferenced
anyway. So either the NULL check is wrong or the function will crash anyway in
which case removing the check makes no difference (the function will crash in a
different place).

This is not to say that adding more NULL checks wouldn't be a valid solution -
it's just more invasive change and I was afraid of introducing changes in
