USB: xhci: Remove buggy assignment in next_trb()
commit a1669b2c64a9c8b031e0ac5cbf2692337a577f7c upstream. The code to increment the TRB pointer has a slight ambiguity that could lead to a bug on different compilers. The ANSI C specification does not specify the precedence of the assignment operator over the postfix operator. gcc 4.4 produced the correct code (increment the pointer and assign the value), but a MIPS compiler that one of John's clients used assigned the old (unincremented) value. Remove the unnecessary assignment to make all compilers produce the correct assembly.
