I think this is a lot harder to read.

My preference would be for

{
	int i;
	u32 off = 0;

	for (i = 0; i < TG3_SD_NUM_RECS; i++) {
		tg3_ape_scratchpad_read(tp, (u32 *)ocir, off, TC3_OCIR_LEN);

		if (ocir->signature != TG3_OCIR_SIG_MAGIC ||
		    !(ocir->version_flags & TG3_OCIR_FLAG_ACTIVE))
			memset(ocir, 0, TG3_OCIR_LEN);

		off += TG3_OCIR_LEN;
		ocir++;
	}
