I was not aware that this code is so old. This fix was made after checkpatch reported assignment inside an if-statement.
Please ignore this patch if th change is not necessary as the code is probably not being used anywhere :)

Maybe the code has to be marked as obsolete in the MAINTAINERS file to prevent patches being sent?

These were only intended for a clean-up job, the idea of this function came from how PCI handles procfs.
Maybe those should be changed?
