Subject: [PATCH v2] mmc: sdhci-cadence: fix logically and structurally dead code
Date: Thu, 19 Apr 2018 10:59:58 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Currently, the code block inside the for loop will never execute
more than once, because the function returns inmediately after
the first iteration, hence the execution of the code at the second
iteration is structurally dead and, code at line 281: return 0; is
never reached.

Fix this by checking _ret_ before return.

Addresses-Coverity-ID: 1468009 ("Logically dead code")
Addresses-Coverity-ID: 1468002 ("Structurally dead code")
Suggested-by: Masahiro Yamada <>
Signed-off-by: Gustavo A. R. Silva <>
Changes in v2:
 - Update changelog.
 - Drop the 'Fixes' tag.
 - Add check on ret instead of removing the "return ret;" line.
 - Thanks to Masahiro Yamada for the feedback provided.
