Subject[PATCH v3] staging: kpc2000: remove unnecessary assertions in kpc_dma_transfer
In kpc_dma_transfer(), the assertion that priv is NULL and priv->ldev
is NULL, are never satisfied. The two callers of the function,
dereference the fields before the function is called. This patch
removes the two BUG_ON calls.

Signed-off-by: Aditya Pakki <>
v2: Also remove BUG_ON call for ldev, suggested by Greg.

v1: Replace the recovery code by removing the assertion, as suggested
by Greg Kroah-Hartman.
