Surprising Code In sound/core/pcm_native.c In Recent Git Tree

Hello everyone!

When i was reading the code in sound/core/pcm_native.c in
recent git tree, i got stuck in line no 3258. It is something
like this
snd_assert(substream != NULL, goto out);

That (goto statement) surprised me for a while unless i came to
know snd_assert() is a macro (as expected!). Previous version
too had a return statement in it.

The point is that can we have a nicer code? Because this type
of code is sometimes __CONFUSING__.

Thanks :-)
