Subject: [PATCH] staging: wilc1000: drop explicit conversion to bool

As the expression evaluates to a boolean anyway (relational and logical operators) conversion
with the ternary operator is not needed here as coccinelle notes (boolconv.cocci)

Signed-off-by: Nicholas Mc Guire <>

scripts/coccinelle/misc/boolconv.cocci warned about:
drivers/staging/wilc1000/wilc_wlan.c:14:48-53: WARNING: conversion to bool not needed here

Patch was compile tested with: x86_64_defconfig + Staging=y,
WILC1000_SDIO=m, WILC1000_SPI=m, WILC1000=m
(checkpatch, sparse and cocci clean otherwise)

Patch is against 5.1-rc3 (localversion-next is -next-20190403)
