That condition cannot happen, because both next() & show() are called to
iterate through the content of the seq_file & by definition their v
argument is non-NULL (else seq_file would have finished iterating
already). That argument came from either start() or an earlier call to
next(), which would only have returned a non-NULL pointer into tgid_map
if tgid_map is non-NULL.

I've added comments to this effect in v2, though the second patch in v2
does wind up effectively adding back the check in next() anyway in order
to reuse some code.

I was tempted to just add the redundant checks anyway (pick your battles
and all) but for show() in particular it wound up making things seem
non-sensical to me ("display the value describing this non-NULL pointer
into tgid_map only if tgid_map is not NULL?").

Thanks,
Paul
