Hi Teng Qi,

As discussed previously this isn't technically a 'fix' as the default case can
never actually occur, so I've modified the patch description a tiny bit make
that clear.  It's a good change, but we probably don't want to back port it to
older kernels and most things that claim to be 'fixes' are back ported.

Applied to the iio-togreg branch of iio.git and pushed out as testing for 0-day
to see if it can find anything we missed.

Always good to see a new robot finding suspicious bits of code like this :)

Thanks,

Jonathan
