src/c/src/lib/libbsp/sparc/shared/can/occan.c:1573: broken error checking ?

src/c/src/lib/libbsp/sparc/shared/can/occan.c:1573]: (style) Checking if unsigned variable 'speed=pelican_speed_auto(can)' is less than zero.

Source code is

if ( (speed=pelican_speed_auto(can)) < 0 ){

/* failed */



unsigned int speed;


static int pelican_speed_auto(occan_priv *priv);

I am not sure which C compiler gets using in rtems, but I do
know that gcc compiler flag -Wtype-limits will flag this
kind of problem.

This might not generated a warning because it is part of dead code that will never be reached due to the return statement just above. I have made a patch to remove this dead code, it will close this ticket.
