Thsnk you for your patch.

So I've been doing some digging and this code normally never executes.

For this to execute the user would need to change the rtw_load_phy_file module
param from its default of 0x44 (LOAD_BB_PG_PARA_FILE | LOAD_RF_TXPWR_LMT_PARA_FILE)
to something which includes 0x02 (LOAD_BB_PARA_FILE) as mask.

And even with that param set for this code to actually do something /
for pBuf to ever not be NULL the following conditions would have to
be true:

1) Set the rtw_load_phy_file module param from its default of
0x44 (LOAD_BB_PG_PARA_FILE | LOAD_RF_TXPWR_LMT_PARA_FILE) to something
which includes 0x02 as mask; and
2) Set rtw_phy_file_path module parameter to say "/lib/firmware/"; and
3) Store a /lib/firmware/rtl8723b/PHY_REG.txt file in the expected format.

So I've come to the conclusion that all the phy_Config*WithParaFile functions
(and a bunch of stuff they use) can be removed.

I will prepare and submit a patch for this.

Regards,

Hans
