A memory block is allocated through kmalloc(), and its return value is
assigned to the pointer oinfo. If the return value of
ocfs2_global_read_info() at line 709 is less than zero,
oinfo->dqi_gqinode may be not initialized. However, it is accessed at
line 775:

To fix this possible uninitialized-variable access, replace kmalloc()
with kzalloc() when allocating memory for oinfo.

* Replace kzalloc() with NULL assignment to oinfo->dqi_gqinode.
  Thank Joseph Qi for helpful advice.
