Subject: [PATCH][next] ath11k: remove redundant initialization of pointer info

From: Colin Ian King <>

Pointer info is being assigned twice, once at the start of the function
and secondly when it is just about to be accessed. Remove the redundant
initialization and keep the original assignment to info that is close
to the memcpy that uses it.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Unused value")
