I believe that this is dealing with code that looks like:
	for (int i = 0; i < limit; i++)

In the original ANSI blessing, the scope of `i' extended into more_code, but
the new blessed standard has it extending only through some_code.

Currently, it's probably best to not use this at all.

Try it this way:
		(*nodebufstat).figure = -1;

Or, probably more directly:
		nodebufstat->figure = -1;
