Subject: [PATCH] scsi: qla4xxx: avoid freeing unallocated dma memory

Clang -Wuninitialized notices that on is_qla40XX we never allocate
any DMA memory in get_fw_boot_info() but attempt to free it anyway:

drivers/scsi/qla4xxx/ql4_os.c:5915:7: error: variable 'buf_dma' is used uninitialized whenever 'if' condition is false
                if (!(val & 0x07)) {
drivers/scsi/qla4xxx/ql4_os.c:5985:47: note: uninitialized use occurs here
        dma_free_coherent(&ha->pdev->dev, size, buf, buf_dma);
drivers/scsi/qla4xxx/ql4_os.c:5915:3: note: remove the 'if' if its condition is always true
                if (!(val & 0x07)) {
drivers/scsi/qla4xxx/ql4_os.c:5885:20: note: initialize the variable 'buf_dma' to silence this warning
        dma_addr_t buf_dma;
                           = 0

Skip the call to dma_free_coherent() here.
