I am also free to ignore patches with changelogs that do not say
anything of consequence, which I will do here.

This patch seems to contain two different "simplifications" in one.
I have no objections against the first simplification:

-	if (quirk_list) {
-		kfree(quirk_list);
-		quirk_list = NULL;
-	}
-
+	kfree(quirk_list);
 	quirk_list = kcalloc(quirk_count, sizeof(struct quirk_entry),
 			     GFP_KERNEL);

Since kfree() does nothing to nullpointers, all lines that are cut seem
to be superfluous.

The second simplification does not seem to introduce any new bugs as far
as I can tell. Due to lack of experience, I shall refrain from commenting
on whether or not it simplifies things.
