Subject: [PATCH 1/13] libertas: make return of 0 explicit

From: Julia Lawall <Julia.Lawall@...6.fr>

Delete unnecessary local variable whose value is always 0 and that hides
the fact that the result is always 0.

A simplified version of the semantic patch that fixes this problem is as
follows: (http://coccinelle.lip6.fr/)

// <smpl>
@r exists@
local idexpression ret;
expression e;
position p;
@@

-ret = 0;
... when != ret = e
return 
- ret
+ 0
  ;
// </smpl>

Signed-off-by: Julia Lawall <Julia.Lawall@...6.fr>

Alternatively, was an error code intended in the bad length case, as is
done in process_brxed_802_11_packet?
