Subject[PATCH] Removing dead code in /drivers/net/wan/hdlc_fr.c
From: Cédric Augonnet <>

Removing dead code in /drivers/net/wan/hdlc_fr.c

The local variable "prefix" is never used anymore, and the content of
this string appears a bit later, directly in a call to "alloc_netdev"
after doing exactly the same if/else test. So there seems to be no
point keeping those 4 lines anymore.
