If "credits" is really 11 bits long (i.e., if that call to
proto_tree_add_bits_ret_val() will never put a value > 2047 into
"credits"), it could be cast to a guint (with a comment explaining
this), which should suppress the warning.

Yes, have done now (you shamed me into going back to add a comment).

Does anyone know of a gcc flag we can add to catch cases like this?  It (obviously) compiled clean on my work machine.
