Yeah I see it too.

This happens because we have a generic byte reverse function
(do_byte_reverse()), that takes a size as a parameter. So it will
reverse 8, 16, 32 bytes etc.

In some cases the compiler can see that we're passing a pointer to
storage that is smaller than 32 bytes, but it isn't convinced that the
size parameter is also smaller than 32 bytes.

Which I think is reasonable, the code that sets the size is separate
from this code, so the compiler can't really deduce that it's safe.

I don't see a really simple fix. I tried clamping the size parameter to
do_byte_reverse() with max(), but that didn't work :/

cheers
