If the sets is one, it means that the cache is fully associative, then
we don't need to fill the ways number, just keep way number as zero,
so here we want to find the fully associative case first and make the
if expression fail at the beginning. We might also rewrite it as
follow:

/* Fully associative */
if (sets == 1)
return;

/* n-ways associative, make sure all properties are big than zero, it
is meaningless when one of them are zero. Full associative case is
filtered by the condition above, so we don't need to consider sets ==
1 again. */
if (sets > 0 && size > 0 && line_size >0)
this_leaf->ways_of_associativity = (size / sets) / line_size;
