The original code is OK.

It's best to avoid line numbers in the commit message unless you paste
the actual code, because sometimes people will be using different line
numbers from you.

drivers/staging/rtl8188eu/core/rtw_mlme_ext.c
  3249          /* get a unique AID */
  3250          if (pstat->aid > 0) {
  3251                  DBG_88E("  old AID %d\n", pstat->aid);
  3252          } else {
  3253                  for (pstat->aid = 1; pstat->aid <= NUM_STA; pstat->aid++)
  3254                          if (pstapriv->sta_aid[pstat->aid - 1] == NULL)
  3255                                  break;
  3256  
  3257                  /* if (pstat->aid > NUM_STA) { */
                           ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
This comment is key.  pstapriv->max_num_sta is always less than or equal
to NUM_STA.

  3258                  if (pstat->aid > pstapriv->max_num_sta) {
  3259                          pstat->aid = 0;
  3260  
  3261                          DBG_88E("  no room for more AIDs\n");
  3262  
  3263                          status = WLAN_STATUS_AP_UNABLE_TO_HANDLE_NEW_STA;
  3264  
  3265                          goto OnAssocReqFail;
  3266                  } else {
  3267                          pstapriv->sta_aid[pstat->aid - 1] = pstat;
                                                  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
So this is fine.

  3268                          DBG_88E("allocate new AID=(%d)\n", pstat->aid);
  3269                  }
  3270          }
  3271
