Subject: Re: [PATCH 2/2] staging: rtl8188eu: Fix private WEXT IOCTL calls

Thanks for doing this.

This needs to be folded in with the earlier patch you send and then
resend it as a V2 patch.

I added Johannes to the CC list again because this is sort of his
fault...  To be honest, I'm a little bit puzzled.  I would have thought
Johannes's change would have made some code unused and that we could
delete it now.  I haven't looked at this.

Please keep the success path and failure paths separate like I did in
the example code that I wrote in my email.  Don't indent the labels.  It
should look like this:

	update_sta_info_apmode(padapter, psta);

	if (copy_to_user(wrqu->data.pointer, param, wrqu->data.length)) {
		ret = -EFAULT;
		goto err_free_param;
	}

	kfree(param);
	return 0;

err_free_param:
	kfree(param);
	return ret;

dan carpenter
