Subject: [PATCH] x86/kernel: remove unneeded dead-store initialization
Date: Wed, 31 Mar 2021 16:00:24 +0800
Message-ID: <> (raw)

make clang-analyzer on x86_64 defconfig caught my attention with:

arch/x86/kernel/cpu/cacheinfo.c:880:24: warning: Value stored to
'this_cpu_ci' during its initialization is never read
struct cpu_cacheinfo *this_cpu_ci = get_cpu_cacheinfo(cpu);

So, simply remove this unneeded dead-store initialization to make
clang-analyzer happy.

As compilers will detect this unneeded assignment and optimize this anyway,
the resulting object code is identical before and after this change.

No functional change. No change to object code.
