Subject: [PATCH v2] net: qlogic: qlcnic: simplify if-if to if-else

Replace `if (!pause->autoneg)` with `else` for simplification
according to the kernel coding style:

"Do not unnecessarily use braces where a single statement will do."


"This does not apply if only one branch of a conditional statement is
a single statement; in the latter case use braces in both branches"

Please refer to:
