Thank you for the suggestion,
It looks like the code after that can be skipped in case of loop_conns
list is empty, the tmp_list will be empty too.

174         list_for_each_entry_safe(lc, _lc, &tmp_list, loop_node) {
175                 WARN_ON(lc->conn->c_passive);
176                 rds_conn_destroy(lc->conn);
177         }
