Hello Alexei Starovoitov,

The patch fec56f5890d9: "bpf: Introduce BPF trampoline" from Nov 14,
2019, leads to the following static checker warning:

	kernel/bpf/btf.c:4023 btf_distill_func_proto()
	error: potentially dereferencing uninitialized 't'.

  4012          nargs = btf_type_vlen(func);
  4013          if (nargs >= MAX_BPF_FUNC_ARGS) {
  4014                  bpf_log(log,
  4015                          "The function %s has %d arguments. Too many.\n",
  4016                          tname, nargs);
  4017                  return -EINVAL;
  4018          }
  4019          ret = __get_type_size(btf, func->type, &t);
t isn't initialized for the first -EINVAL return

  4020          if (ret < 0) {
  4021                  bpf_log(log,
  4022                          "The function %s return type %s is unsupported.\n",
  4023                          tname, btf_kind_str[BTF_INFO_KIND(t->info)]);
  4024                  return -EINVAL;
  4025          }
  4026          m->ret_size = ret;
