Subject: [PATCH] ACPI / LPSS: remove redundant initialization of clk

From: Colin Ian King <>

The pointer clk is being initialized to ERR_PTR(-ENODEV) however
this value is never read before it is set to clk_data->clk. Thus
the initialization is redundant and can be mored.

Cleans up clang warning:
Value stored to 'clk' during its initialization is never read
