With gcc-4.1.2:

    net/ipv4/inet_hashtables.c: In function ‘inet_unhash’:
    net/ipv4/inet_hashtables.c:628: warning: ‘ilb’ may be used uninitialized in this function

While this is a false positive, it can easily be avoided by using the
pointer itself as the canary variable.

Looks like a reasonable workaround if we care about it. gcc-4.3 and higher
don't seem to produce this warning, so I wouldn't normally care though.

This frankly also makes the logic simpler and doesn't increase register
pressure, I like it.

Applied, thanks.
