According to the original code logic:
if (!nvdimm->num_flush) {
	flush_data_size += sizeof(void *);
	//nvdimm->num_flush is zero now, add 1) have no side effects
} else {
	flush_data_size += sizeof(void *);
1)	flush_data_size += nvdimm->num_flush * sizeof(void *);
}

Obviously, the above code snippet can be reduced to one statement:
flush_data_size += (nvdimm->num_flush + 1) * sizeof(void *);

No functional change.

I will drop this patch, because I have a doubt:
Suppose the nd_region->ndr_mappings is 4, and for each nd_region->mapping[],
the value of num_flush is "0, 0, 4, 0", so the flush_data_size is "1 + 1 + 5 + 1", * sizeof(void *).
But in ndrd_get_flush_wpq() or ndrd_set_flush_wpq(), the expression is
"ndrd->flush_wpq[dimm * num + (hint & mask)]", I don't think the memory "ndrd" allocated is enough.
Please refer call chain: nd_region_activate() --> nvdimm_map_flush() --> ndrd_set_flush_wpq()

	for (i = 0; i < nd_region->ndr_mappings; i++) {
                struct nd_mapping *nd_mapping = &nd_region->mapping[i];
                struct nvdimm *nvdimm = nd_mapping->nvdimm;

                /* at least one null hint slot per-dimm for the "no-hint" case */
                flush_data_size += sizeof(void *);
                num_flush = min_not_zero(num_flush, nvdimm->num_flush);
                if (!nvdimm->num_flush)
                        continue;
                flush_data_size += nvdimm->num_flush * sizeof(void *);
        }

        ndrd = devm_kzalloc(dev, sizeof(*ndrd) + flush_data_size, GFP_KERNEL);
