Subject: [PATCH v2 12/16] f2fs: Eliminate usage of uninitialized_var() macro
Date: Fri, 19 Jun 2020 20:30:03 -0700
Message-ID: <20200620033007.1444705-13-keescook@chromium.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200620033007.1444705-1-keescook@chromium.org>

From: Jason Yan <yanaijie@huawei.com>

This is an effort to eliminate the uninitialized_var() macro[1].

The use of this macro is the wrong solution because it forces off ANY
analysis by the compiler for a given variable. It even masks "unused
variable" warnings.

Quoted from Linus[2]:

"It's a horrible thing to use, in that it adds extra cruft to the
source code, and then shuts up a compiler warning (even the _reliable_
warnings from gcc)."

Fix it by remove this variable since it is not needed at all.
