Subject: [PATCH] gpiolib: of: reset name variable in of_gpiochip_add_hog
Date: Tue, 28 Jul 2020 06:42:26 -0700
Message-ID: <> (raw)

From: Tom Rix <>

Clang static analysis reports this error

gpiolib-of.c:664:9: warning: 2nd function call argument
  is an uninitialized value [core.CallAndMessage]
        ret = gpiod_hog(desc, name, lflags, dflags);

name is sometimes set by of_parse_own_gpio
name is always used by gpiod_hog

So it is necessary to reset name so an old value is
not mistakenly used by gpiod_hog.

Fixes: bc21077e084b ("gpio: of: Extract of_gpiochip_add_hog()")
