Subject: [PATCH 2/2] ftrace: silence uninitialized variable warning
Date: Wed, 12 Jul 2017 10:35:57 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20170712073556.h6tkpjcdzjaozozs@mwanda> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20170712073340.4enzeojeoupuds5a@mwanda>

My static checker complains that if "func" is NULL then "clear_filter"
is uninitialized.  This seems like it could be true, although it's
possible something subtle is happening that I haven't seen.

    kernel/trace/ftrace.c:3844 match_records()
    error: uninitialized symbol 'clear_filter'.

It does occur to me that I could initialize it to 1 instead of 0 but my
guess is that zero is intended.  Please review this one carefully.
