Subject: [PATCH] Staging: comedi: range: remove unnecessary sanity check

This check is unnecessary because range_table will always be
initialized to range_unknown by comedi_device_postconfig() for
drivers that do not initialize range_table or range_table_list

Signed-off-by: Fred Akers <>
Apply this after first patch
