static int cas_alloc_rxds(struct cas *cp)
{
	int i;

	for (i = 0; i < N_RX_DESC_RINGS; i++) {
		if (cas_alloc_rx_desc(cp, i) < 0) {
	       		cas_free_rxds(cp);
			return -1;
		}
	}
	return 0;
}

Again, your change is correct, but in the end the value is not used.
And if you fix it at the cas_alloc_rxds level, you also need a fix at
the next level up:

	err = -ENOMEM;
	if (cas_tx_tiny_alloc(cp) < 0)
		goto err_unlock;

	/* alloc rx descriptors */
	if (cas_alloc_rxds(cp) < 0)
		goto err_tx_tiny;

again, the return value is discarded.
