Subject: [PATCH][next] mctp: remove duplicated assignment of pointer hdr
Date: Wed,  4 Aug 2021 13:15:30 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

From: Colin Ian King <>

The pointer hdr is being initialized and also re-assigned with the
same value from the call to function mctp_hdr. Static analysis reports
that the initializated value is unused. The second assignment is
duplicated and can be removed.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Unused value").
