[Tomek] I measn it's ok. There's a check inside comp_perf_check_capabilities function.
If the value from test_data->window_sz > cap->window_size we have a fail.
Also during parsing there's a check is value from command line between 0 and UINT16_MAX,
so in my opinion all cases are tested. The point is there's only one place where
we're parsing uint8_t value.  parse_uint8_t function will be especially for that.
