Subject: [PATCH v3] rtw88: Remove unnecessary check code
Date: Sun, 18 Jul 2021 10:42:02 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

The rtw_pci_init_rx_ring function is only ever called with a fixed
constant or RTK_MAX_RX_DESC_NUM for the "len" argument. Since this
constant is defined as 512, the "if (len > TRX_BD_IDX_MASK)" check
can never happen (TRX_BD_IDX_MASK is defined as GENMASK(11, 0) or in
other words as 4095).

So, remove this check.

Signed-off-by: Len Baker <>
Changelog v1 -> v2
- Remove the macro ARRAY_SIZE from the for loop (Pkshih, Brian Norris).
- Add a new check for the len variable (Pkshih, Brian Norris).

Changelog v2 -> v3
- Change the subject of the patch.
- Remove the "if" check statement (Greg KH)
- Remove the "Fixes" tag, "Addresses-Coverity-ID" tag and Cc to stable.
