Subject: [PATCH] hwmon: (sht15): remove redundant check on status and send of status value

From: Colin Ian King <>

A previous commit removed bit or'ing into to the integer status
so now status is now always zero. This means that the non-zero check on
status and the sht15_send_status call will never occur; it is deadcode.
Clean this up by removing the dead code.

Detected by: CoverityScan CID#1456835 ("Logically dead code")

Fixes: aa7ab80c578c ("hwmon: (sht15) Root out platform data")
