 static code analysis program

Hello Rickard,

Thank you for the patch, I have written some comments below.

You need to add what subsystem the patch is intended for to the subject line. 
The following command will list the subject lines used for a particular file:

git log --pretty=oneline drivers/net/wireless/rtlwifi/rtl8188ee/trx.c

The subject line description should be in imperative mood.
"as if you are giving orders to the codebase to change its behaviour"

Also you need to write a description for the change log here and there
need to be a Signed-off-by line.

For more information read SubmittingPatches in the Documentation folder.

There is a fix for this one already in the linux-next tree:

commit 328e203fc35f0b4f6df1c4943f74cf553bcc04f8
Author: Colin Ian King <colin.king@...onical.com>
Date:   Mon Apr 21 17:38:44 2014 +0100

    rtlwifi: rtl8188ee: initialize packet_beacon

I'm not familiar with this code so I don't know what was intended here.
Your changes are harmless but perhaps bcnfunc_enable and this dead code
was intended to be used somehow.

Perhaps you would like to resend with the above changes?
And hopefully someone that knows this code well will find the time
to look at the _rtl92de_set_media_status function.
