Thanks for pointing this out. In that case will assigning the variable to
devpriv->ao_loopbacks[chan] be acceptable? Please review below snippet.

Otherwise I'll just drop the variable and adjust the lines to avoid
checkpatch warning.

Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

			/* output the last scan */
			for (i = 0; i < cmd->scan_end_arg; i++) {
				unsigned int chan = CR_CHAN(cmd->chanlist[i]);
				unsigned short data;

				if (!comedi_buf_read_samples(s, &data, 1)) {
					/* unexpected underrun! (cancelled?) */
					async->events |= COMEDI_CB_OVERFLOW;
					goto underrun;
				}

				devpriv->ao_loopbacks[chan] = data;
			}
			/* advance time of last scan */
