Subject: [PATCH] net/enic: fix assignment

[ upstream commit e735c8e20b9c727fd60f9ae1fa86114594c6ec76 ]

As it stands, the existing assignment to mbuf has no effect outside of
the function.  Prior to this change, the mbuf argument would contain
an invalid address, but it would not be null.  After this change, the
caller gets a null mbuf back.

Fixes: 947d860c821f ("enic: improve Rx performance")
