Subject: [PATCH] net: dsa: b53: remove redundant premature assignment to new_pvid

From: Colin Ian King <>

Variable new_pvid is being assigned with a value that is never read,
the following if statement updates new_pvid with a new value in both
of the if paths. The assignment is redundant and can be removed.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Unused value")
