Subject: [PATCH] net: openvswitch: pass NULL for unused parameters

From: Tom Rix <trix@...hat.com>

clang static analysis flags these problems

flow_table.c:713:2: warning: The expression is an uninitialized
  value. The computed value will also be garbage
        (*n_mask_hit)++;
        ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
flow_table.c:748:5: warning: The expression is an uninitialized
  value. The computed value will also be garbage
                                (*n_cache_hit)++;
                                ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

These are not problems because neither pararmeter is used
by the calling function.

Looking at all of the calling functions, there are many
cases where the results are unused.  Passing unused
parameters is a waste.

To avoid passing unused parameters, rework the
masked_flow_lookup() and flow_lookup() routines to check
for NULL parameters and change the unused parameters to NULL.
