This is a close as anything could possibly come to modifying ctl, but
in this case it's just being silly and preventing compier warnings,
I'd assume.

	/* we don't need that parameter */

Just in case the compiler decides to do-something-it-shouldn't, could
you try switching this to a:
	/* we don't need that parameter */

That's as close as I can get
