Yes.

I also wondered if this caller might actually be relying on the current
non-looping behavior, but it looks like I already traced through and
determined this was OK:

  https://public-inbox.org/git/20180111063110.GB31213@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/

(the cleanup is correct either way, but that is what makes the
conversion to xread() OK).

We may want to just take the xread() conversion and then do the patch
that I linked above on top, since it also cleans up the xwrite() spot,
too.
