Subject: [PATCH] ath: ath6kl: fix error return code of ath6kl_htc_rx_bundle()

When hif_scatter_req_get() returns NULL to scat_req, no error return
code of ath6kl_htc_rx_bundle() is assigned.
To fix this bug, status is assigned with -EINVAL in this case.

Hi Leon,

I am quite sorry for my incorrect patches...
My static analysis tool reports some possible bugs about error handling
code, and thus I write some patches for the bugs that seem to be true in
my opinion.
Because I am not familiar with many device drivers, some of my reported
bugs can be false positives...


Best wishes,
Jia-Ju Bai

It will be much helpful if instead of writing new static analysis tool,
you will invest time and improve existing well known tools, like smatch
and sparse.

Right now, you didn't report bugs, but sent bunch of patches that most
of the time are incorrect. So it is not "some of my reported bugs can
be false positives...", but "some of my patches can fix real bugs by
chance".

Thanks
