fs/reiserfs: use an IS_ERR test rather than a NULL test
In case of error, the function open_xa_dir returns an ERR pointer, but never returns a NULL pointer. So a NULL test that comes after an IS_ERR test should be deleted. The semantic match that finds this problem is as follows: (http://www.emn.fr/x-info/coccinelle/) // <smpl> @match_bad_null_test@ expression x, E; statement S1,S2; @@ x = open_xa_dir(...) ... when != x = E ( * if (x == NULL && ...) S1 else S2 | * if (x == NULL || ...) S1 else S2 ) // </smpl> Signed-off-by: Julien Brunel <brunel@diku.dk> Signed-off-by: Julia Lawall <julia@diku.dk> Cc: Jeff Mahoney <jeffm@suse.com> Cc: Jan Kara <jack@ucw.cz> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
