SubjectRe: [Outreachy kernel] [PATCH] staging: rtl8723bs: Remove comparisons to NULL in conditionals

The patch also drops some parentheses that are completely unrelated to the
change described here. These changes should not be done in this patch.

There is no need to give the name of the file in the log message. One can
see that directly in the patch. Likewise, it is not necessary to give the
complete message from checkpatch. Saying that checkpatch identified the
problem is good enough.

A good commit log message should say what you have done and why. The
message above is missing the "why" part. Why is it a good idea to remove
the NULL comparisons, beyond that checkpatch said that it was something to
check?
