Subject[PATCH] net/tulip/xircom_cb.c: remove superfulous priv assignment
Date
Hello,

Unpatched version does sth like this:

dev = alloc_etherdev(...
private = netdev_priv(dev);
...
dev->priv = private;

which doesn't make much sense (does it?) because this is done in
alloc_netdev() already.

struct net_device *alloc_netdev(...
{
...
if (sizeof_priv)
dev->priv = netdev_priv(dev);
This patch removes superfluous code.
