SubjectRe: [Nouveau] [PATCH] drm/nouveau/mmu: fix odd_ptr_err.cocci warnings (fwd)
Hi julia,

I think it would be better to extract the assignment out of the if
clause. Then you'll get something like this:

memory = ...;
if (IS_ERR(memory)) {
....
}

so, to answer your question: no, it isn't necessary.
