Subject: [PATCH 3/8] fs/9p: One function call less in v9fs_vfs_atomic_open()
 after error detection

From: Markus Elfring <>
Date: Sun, 28 Dec 2014 08:45:31 +0100

The p9_client_clunk() function was called in one case by the
v9fs_vfs_atomic_open() function during error handling even if the passed
variable "fid" contained a null pointer.

This implementation detail could be improved by the adjustment of a jump target.
Let us delete also an unnecessary variable assignment there.
