assigning NULL

Adding a pointer to a pointer doesn't make any sense.  But the result
is non-NULL because event_dev is non-NULL.

Impossible because tail_spin is NULL and token is non-NULL.

re-assigning NULL.  local variable assigned right before a return is
pointless.

Always true condition.

Pointless assign.

This whole patch is a very complicated no-op.  :P  I'm not sure at all
what was intended by this patch.
