Subject: [PATCH v2] net: ethernet: mtk_eth_soc: fix error checking in mtk_mac_config()

From: Tom Rix <>

Clang static analysis reports this problem
mtk_eth_soc.c:394:7: warning: Branch condition evaluates
  to a garbage value
                if (err)

err is not initialized and only conditionally set.

v2: change to initializing
