Subject: [PATCH] riscv: perf: fix build warning
Date: Sun, 25 Nov 2018 14:51:21 -0800
Message-ID: <> (raw)
Message-ID: <20181125225121.s9kjjNTRjyDonvB4nwc82Rvh28Au1214BriVgQNBsFE@z> (raw)

Due to the -ENOENT return, the variables can't actually be used
uninitialized, but the compiler isn't smart enough in this case.

Let's just set them before returning with the error for now, it'll be
filled in once implemented.

arch/riscv/kernel/perf_event.c:166:5: warning: 'type' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wmaybe-uninitialized]
arch/riscv/kernel/perf_event.c:166:38: warning: 'op' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wmaybe-uninitialized]
arch/riscv/kernel/perf_event.c:167:39: warning: 'result' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wmaybe-uninitialized]

Signed-off-by: Olof Johansson <>

I swear I posted this exact fix just last week, but can't find a reference
to it anywhere.
