SubjectRe: [ath5k-devel] [PATCH 2/2] ath5k: don't change mac in eeprom_read_mac on error
From
2009/3/7 Jiri Slaby <jirislaby@gmail.com>:
> Do not touch mac parameter passed to ath5k_eeprom_read_mac unless
> we are sure we have correct address. I.e. when returning error, do
> not change it.
>
> While at it, use '= {}' compiler trick for memsetting mac_d.
