Subject[PATCH] [RESEND] floppy: fix harmless clang build warning
clang warns about unusual code in floppy.c that looks like it
was intended to be a bit mask operation, checking for a specific
bit in the UDP->cmos variable (FLOPPY1_TYPE expands to '4' on

drivers/block/floppy.c:3902:17: error: use of logical '&&' with constant operand [-Werror,-Wconstant-logical-operand]
if (!UDP->cmos && FLOPPY1_TYPE)
^ ~~~~~~~~~~~~
drivers/block/floppy.c:3902:17: note: use '&' for a bitwise operation
if (!UDP->cmos && FLOPPY1_TYPE)

The check here is redundant anyway, if FLOPPY1_TYPE is zero, then
assigning it to a zero UDP->cmos field does not change anything,
so removing the extra check here has no effect other than shutting
up the warning.

On x86, this will no longer read a hardware register, as the
FLOPPY1_TYPE macro is not expanded if UDP->cmos is already
zero, but the result is the same.

The original patch did not get merged since there was some
discussion (see link), but as far as I can tell, the outcome
was that it's harmless so I just summarized the findings
above. The patch is unchanged from March.
