[PATCH 1/2] staging: dgnc: remove redundant NULL check for brd

Daeseok Youn
the "brd" value cannot be NULL in dgnc_finalize_board_init().
Because "brd" as a parameter of this function was already
checked for NULL.

This is partially correct, the check for brd being NULL is in line 371.

But there is a second check for brd->magic != DGNC_BOARD_MAGIC. Do you want
to keep that one?

Also, how did you find this patch. It is useful to mention this in the commit
message if it was through some static analysis tool. For people using these tools
in the future.

Thanks for the patch :)
Luis

Hi Luis,

Yes, right. but also brd was assigned the value DGNC_BOARD_MAGIC in line 384.
brd->magic = DGNC_BOARD_MAGIC;
and also dgnc_finalize_board_init() as a static function is only
called in dgnc_found_board(), right?

So.. I think it doesn't need to check about DGNC_BOARD_MAGIC.

There are some static analysis tool for checking linux kernel code.
But I didn't use
those tools for this patch. sometimes, I usually run "smatch" tool for
checking linux kernel
code.

thanks.
regards,
Daeseok.

This is good. I was asking just to make sure it was your intention.

Please add the reason to drop that second check in the commit message as well. So people
reading the git log can understand both parts. For both patches.

Thanks for the fixes :)
