Definitely not.  The test should follow the comment logic:

!       // This happens when adding 'USE' to a component that is not yet one.

I think the extra parens are just that.  This code was updated as part of 6511991.  I still have the webrev from that and I put it up at http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~never/6511991/src/share/vm/adlc/formssel.cpp.unidiff.html.  I think the parens just got redistributed without removing unneeded ones.  The newly added warning was a copy from above and I think the test wasn't simplified correctly for the context.  I think it should be:

Sound reasonable?
