[IA64] Eliminate NULL test after alloc_bootmem in iosapic_alloc_rte()
As noted by Akinobu Mita alloc_bootmem and related functions never return NULL and always return a zeroed region of memory. Thus a NULL test or memset after calls to these functions is unnecessary. Signed-off-by: Julia Lawall <julia@diku.dk> Signed-off-by: Tony Luck <tony.luck@intel.com>
