[PATCH 04/10] dlm: don't do pointless NULL check, use kzalloc and fix order of arguments

From: David Teigland
Date: Thu Jul 21 2011 - 12:05:00 EST

From: Jesper Juhl <jj@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

In fs/dlm/lock.c in the dlm_scan_waiters() function there are 3 small

1) There's no need to test the return value of the allocation and do a
memset if is succeedes. Just use kzalloc() to obtain zeroed memory.

2) Since kfree() handles NULL pointers gracefully, the test of
'warned' against NULL before the kfree() after the loop is completely
pointless. Remove it.

3) The arguments to kmalloc() (now kzalloc()) were swapped. Thanks to
Dr. David Alan Gilbert for pointing this out.
