Yeah, this was fixed with the follow on patch:

commit c07a213db1437a8fd40c328e6a2c426723caec65

i40e: Fix for stats init function call in Rx setup

This patch fixes indentation issue and error found in argument
reported by static analysis. Without this patch, sparse and other
static analysis errors will be found.
