Subject: [PATCH] mbcache: remove redundant comparison of unsigned long with < 0

From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@...onical.com>

The comparison of c_entry_count < 0 is never true because c_entry_count
is an unsigned long and hence cannot be negative.  Hence the 'unlikely'
comparison is redundant and can be removed.

Detected by CoverityScan, CID#1462298 ("Macro compares unsigned to 0")
