The code is what it is. Does the documentation imply that you can do anything
you want with PerMsgStatus object when you have it?

It makes no difference how your "incorrect" code behaves between 3.4 or 4.0.
The basic logic of PerMsgStatus->check() has been the same atleast since 3.3,
check() for all purposes finishes the scan and you should only read the
results. It makes no sense to start changing this logic. Even if 3.4 registers
the got_hit(), internal state will be left inconsistent.
