mtd: remove extra retlen assignment
MTD functions always assign the 'retlen' argument to 0 at the very beginning - the callers do not have to do this. I used the following semantic patch to find these places: @@ identifier retlen; expression a, b, c, d, e; constant C; type T; @@ ( - retlen = C; | T -retlen = C + retlen ; ) ... when != retlen when exists ( mtd_read(a, b, c, &retlen, d) | mtd_write(a, b, c, &retlen, d) | mtd_panic_write(a, b, c, &retlen, d) | mtd_point(a, b, c, &retlen, d, e) | mtd_read_fact_prot_reg(a, b, c, &retlen, d) | mtd_write_user_prot_reg(a, b, c, &retlen, d) | mtd_read_user_prot_reg(a, b, c, &retlen, d) | mtd_writev(a, b, c, d, &retlen) ) I ran it twice, because there were cases of double zero assigments in mtd tests. Then I went through the patch to verify that spatch did not find any false positives.
