This looks reasonable, but you know that !!intent is true in this block,
and looking more at it I think the end result would look better as:

	/* Try to find a reusable intent to fit the request */
	spin_lock()
	intent = findit();
	spin_unlock()

	/* Allocate a new intent if none was found */
	if (!intent) {
		intent = qcom_glink_alloc_intent(glink, channel, size, false);
		if (intent)
			qcom_glink_advertise_intent(glink, channel, intent);
	}

	qcom_glink_send_intent_req_ack(glink, channel, !!intent);
