You're right, but is this used anywhere?

I can't reliably follow brcmsmac code, it copies the same data over
and over. Simple grepping for "vendorid" shows copying from "vendorid"
to "vendorid" of various structs, no real usage.
The one exception is "sha_params.vid = wlc_hw->vendorid;. However grepping with:
grep -R "\.vid" ./*
grep -R "\->vid" ./*
doesn't reveal any usage neither.

Seems like a dead code.
