There is a second pointless assignment at the end of the function as
well:

247
248 ret = new_op->downcall.resp.io.amt_complete;
249
250 out:
251 if (buffer_index >= 0) {
252 if ((readahead_size) && (type == ORANGEFS_IO_READ)) {
253 /* readpage */
254 *index_return = buffer_index;
255 gossip_debug(GOSSIP_FILE_DEBUG,
256 "%s: hold on to buffer_index :%d:\n",
257 __func__, buffer_index);
258 } else {
259 /* O_DIRECT */
260 orangefs_bufmap_put(buffer_index);
261 gossip_debug(GOSSIP_FILE_DEBUG,
262 "%s(%pU): PUT buffer_index %d\n",
263 __func__, handle, buffer_index);
264 }
265 buffer_index = -1;
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

266 }
267 op_release(new_op);
268 return ret;
269 }

You often send these patches before they hit linux-next so I had skipped
reviewing this one when you sent it. I'm coming back to work today
after the flu so I was going through my inbox reviewing old unread
messages...
