    NAK. That sort of patches is only going to hide real problems in the
    code where such warnings are _not_ false positives.

    Let me put it that way: what bug are you fixing in that patch? Is
    there a codepath that would lead to use of r without initialization?
    If there is - show it; if there is not - why are you patching kernel
    and not gcc?
