This O(n^2) loop sucks a little, you can optimized it with some hashing 
or bit-setting/checking. 
But really please don't care about startup-time. It's not so important.

I think non-developers really don't care about whole tmp_fld_check_assert() check,
so one extra is good (and yours patch is really cool).

tmp_fld_check_assert() probably should be #ifdef-ed in some MAINTAINER_BUILD (or #ifndef RELEASE_BUILD)
