Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.5 005/542] wil6210: fix break that is never reached because of zero'ing of a retry counter

From: Colin Ian King <>

[ Upstream commit 5b1413f00b5beb9f5fed94e43ea0c497d5db9633 ]

There is a check on the retry counter invalid_buf_id_retry that is always
false because invalid_buf_id_retry is initialized to zero on each iteration
of a while-loop.  Fix this by initializing the retry counter before the
while-loop starts.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Logically dead code")
Fixes: b4a967b7d0f5 ("wil6210: reset buff id in status message after completion")
