Subject[PATCH] drivers/staging/rtl8192e: Drop unnecessary NULL test
From: Julia Lawall <julia@diku.dk>

The result of container_of should not be NULL. In particular, in this case
the argument to the enclosing function has passed though INIT_WORK, which
dereferences it, implying that its container cannot be NULL.

A simplified version of the semantic patch that makes this change is as
follows:
(http://www.emn.fr/x-info/coccinelle/)

// <smpl>
@@
identifier fn,work,x,fld;
type T;
expression E1,E2;
statement S;
@@

static fn(struct work_struct *work) {
... when != work = E1
x = container_of(work,T,fld)
... when != x = E2
- if (x == NULL) S
...
}
// </smpl>

Signed-off-by: Julia Lawall <julia@diku.dk>
