Subject: drivers/net/xen-netfront.c: bogus code

The Coverity checker spotted the following bogus code
in drivers/net/xen-netfront.c:

<--  snip  -->

...
static void xennet_alloc_rx_buffers(struct net_device *dev)
{
...
        for (nr_flips = i = 0; ; i++) {
                skb = __skb_dequeue(&np->rx_batch);
                if (skb == NULL)
                        break;

                skb->dev = dev;

                id = xennet_rxidx(req_prod + i);

                BUG_ON(np->rx_skbs[id]);
                np->rx_skbs[id] = skb;

                ref = gnttab_claim_grant_reference(&np->gref_rx_head);
                BUG_ON((signed short)ref < 0);
                np->grant_rx_ref[id] = ref;

                pfn = page_to_pfn(skb_shinfo(skb)->frags[0].page);
                vaddr = page_address(skb_shinfo(skb)->frags[0].page);

                req = RING_GET_REQUEST(&np->rx, req_prod + i);
                gnttab_grant_foreign_access_ref(ref,
                                                np->xbdev->otherend_id,
                                                pfn_to_mfn(pfn),
                                                0);

                req->id = id;
                req->gref = ref;
        }

        if (nr_flips != 0) {
...

<--  snip  -->

Note that "nr_flips" is always 0 in the last line.

        of the darkness. There had been need of rain for many days.
       "Only a promise," Lao Er said.
