Subject: [PATCH 4/5] spi/dw_spi.c: remove conditional from 'poll_transfer'.
Date: Thu, 21 Jan 2010 11:40:51 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

The 'poll_transfer' function employs a conditional to test whether the
transmit buffer is valid; in doing so, on a receive operation no data is
clocked out, thus no data is clocked in and ultimately errors appear.

This removes the conditional as the transmit function will be set to a null
writer when the transmit buffer is invalid, allowing the driver to clock 0x00
out to the device to receive data from the device.
