SubjectRe: [PATCH] scsi:NCR5380: remove same check condition in NCR5380_select

If you are trying to find redundant code, your coccinelle script is
dangerously flawed.

You need to realize that NCR5380_read(CURRENT_SCSI_DATA_REG) is not simply
a value in a CPU register or a device register, but it is the actual state
of the scsi bus data lines, which are subject to change any time, at the
whim of the firmwares in all of the SCSI bus devices participating in
arbitration at the time, or of a user who might kick a plug etc.

From the datasheet:

The SCSI data lines are not actually registered, but gated directly
onto the CPU bus whenever Address 000 is read by the CPU...

Hence, NAK.
