SubjectApplied "regulator: max8997: clean up a condition in max8997_list_voltage()" to the regulator tree
The patch

regulator: max8997: clean up a condition in max8997_list_voltage()

has been applied to the regulator tree at

All being well this means that it will be integrated into the linux-next
tree (usually sometime in the next 24 hours) and sent to Linus during
the next merge window (or sooner if it is a bug fix), however if
problems are discovered then the patch may be dropped or reverted.

You may get further e-mails resulting from automated or manual testing
and review of the tree, please engage with people reporting problems and
send followup patches addressing any issues that are reported if needed.

If any updates are required or you are submitting further changes they
should be sent as incremental updates against current git, existing
patches will not be replaced.

Please add any relevant lists and maintainers to the CCs when replying
to this mail.

Subject: [PATCH] regulator: max8997: clean up a condition in

The current code generates a static cehcker warnings because "rid < 0"
is always false:

drivers/regulator/max8997-regulator.c:169 max8997_list_voltage()
warn: condition is always false

The problem is that because of type promotion, if "rid" is negative the
comparison against ARRAY_SIZE() is type promoted to size_t and it's
treated as a very high positive value. I've changed the order of the
checks so now everyone is happy.
