> Coverity complains about out of bound access, which is a false positive.
> The return value of the 'parse_port_list()' can't be bigger than 'maxsize'
> because of the logic in the function. ('value >= (int)maxsize'
> check and 'marked[]' usage.)
> But this is not explicitly clear, causing coverity warning and same question can
> be rise by reviews later.
> Adding a redundant check to highlight the access is in range, this is done by
> replacing existing redundant check.
> This is also good to protect against out out bound access in case
> 'parse_port_list()' behaviour changes later unexpectedly.
