Subject: [PATCH v3] drivers: net: xgene: Rewrite buggy loop in xgene_enet_ecc_init()

drivers/net/ethernet/apm/xgene/xgene_enet_sgmac.c: In function ‘xgene_enet_ecc_init’:
drivers/net/ethernet/apm/xgene/xgene_enet_sgmac.c:126: warning: ‘data’ may be used uninitialized in this function

Depending on the arbitrary value on the stack, the loop may terminate
too early, and cause a bogus -ENODEV failure.

Signed-off-by: Geert Uytterhoeven <geert@...ux-m68k.org>
---
v3:
  - Use "do { ... } while (...);" instead of "for (...) { ... }",
v2:
  - Rewrite the loop instead of pre-initializing data.
