SubjectRe: [PATCH] lib: zlib_inflate "r.base" uninitialized compile warnings

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?
