Too bad that I'm not reading that book at the moment but
"The Practice of Programming" and that book disagrees with that ;)

I had to look twice as the initial warning was in a for loop above:
Either leave it as is for now as the warning is bogus or at least add
the decrement directly to the while like this:
    i = sizeof(MMDrvs) / sizeof(MMDrvs[0]);
    while (i-- > 0)
        MMDRV_ExitPerType(&MMDrvs[i], MMDRV_AUX);

Though the later would still have to pass Alexandre's review.
