Well, it's not the first time that a bytestream_fill_byte or something
like that would have been useful, that's why I mentioned it.
It would still combine the memset+increment into a single function call.
Obviously not something I'd insist on, only mentioned it because as I
said I remember another case where it would have (very slightly)
simplified the code.
