Subject: [PATCH] powerpc/futex: fix warning: 'oldval' may be used uninitialized in this function
Date: Wed, 14 Aug 2019 09:25:52 +0000 (UTC)
Message-ID: <86b72f0c134367b214910b27b9a6dd3321af93bb.1565774657.git.christophe.leroy@c-s.fr> (raw)

  CC      kernel/futex.o
kernel/futex.c: In function 'do_futex':
kernel/futex.c:1676:17: warning: 'oldval' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wmaybe-uninitialized]
   return oldval == cmparg;
                 ^
kernel/futex.c:1651:6: note: 'oldval' was declared here
  int oldval, ret;
      ^

This is because arch_futex_atomic_op_inuser() only sets *oval
if ret is NUL and GCC doesn't see that it will use it only when
ret is NUL.

Anyway, the non-NUL ret path is an error path that won't suffer from
setting *oval, and as *oval is a local var in futex_atomic_op_inuser()
it will have no impact.
