Thank you for reviewing and approving my patch !

Furthermore, I think your idea of open coding reset_control_array_rearm
was accurate, and should be also applied to reset_control_array_reset()
and reset_control_array_(de)assert()

What do you think ?

In case you agree it is necessary to do so, I can work out an upcoming
patchset to fix this matter.
