Subject[git patches 1/2] warnings: attack valid cases spotted by warnings

Those "may be used uninitialized" warnings are annoying. So annoying
that kernel developers tune them out, and that occasionally hides
real bugs, as my past patches (and those below) indicate.

I included the full-length changelog below the diffstat, because
that is where the best explanation for each change is found. In most
cases that's where all the length is -- a paragraph or two describing
what is usually a one-line code change, usually an initialization or
simple cleanup.

This is the first of two git pull sets, the -parent-. If you pull
'warnings' branch, you get what you see below and nothing else.
WYSIWYG. You'll see in the second email why I distinguish the two.

Please pull from 'warnings' branch of
master.kernel.org:/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jgarzik/misc-2.6.git warnings

drivers/atm/ambassador: kill uninit'd var warning, and fix bug

An uninitialized variable warning illuminated an area where indeed the
variable was being used without initialization. Unfortunately, after
verifying all such paths were fixed, the warning still appears. So we
follow the initialization practice of other variables in this function.

drivers/infiniband/hw/mthca/mthca_qp: kill uninit'd var warning

drivers/infiniband/hw/mthca/mthca_qp.c: In function
‘mthca_tavor_post_send’:
drivers/infiniband/hw/mthca/mthca_qp.c:1594: warning: ‘f0’ may be used
uninitialized in this function
drivers/infiniband/hw/mthca/mthca_qp.c: In function
‘mthca_arbel_post_send’:
drivers/infiniband/hw/mthca/mthca_qp.c:1949: warning: ‘f0’ may be used
uninitialized in this function

Initializing 'f0' is not strictly necessary in either case, AFAICS.

I was considering use of uninitialized_var(), but looking at the
complex flow of control in each function, I feel it is wiser and
safer to simply zero the var and be certain of ourselves.

drivers/net/wan/sbni: kill uninit'd var warning

It's actually convenient in the code to initialize this and a sister

drivers/telephony/ixj: cleanup and fix gcc warning

1) Fix gcc uninit'd var warnings by adding 'default' switch stmt labels
in two cases. It was lightning-strikes unlikely that a problem would
ever arise, but not impossible.

2) Tighten the scope of 'blankword' in two cases.

drivers/usb/misc/auerswald: fix status check, remove redundant check

1) We should only set 'actual_length' output variable if usb length is
known to be good.

2) No need to check actual_length for NULL. The only caller always
passes non-NULL value.

[netdrvr] natsemi: Fix device removal bug

This episode illustrates how an overused warning can train people to
ignore that warning, which winds up hiding bugs.

The warning

drivers/net/natsemi.c: In function ‘natsemi_remove1’:
drivers/net/natsemi.c:3222: warning: ignoring return value of
‘device_create_file’, declared with attribute warn_unused_result

is oft-ignored, even though at close inspection one notices this occurs
in the /remove/ function, not normally where creation occurs. A quick
s/create/remove/ and we are fixed, with the warning gone.

kernel/auditfilter: kill bogus uninit'd-var compiler warning

Kill this warning...

kernel/auditfilter.c: In function ‘audit_receive_filter’:
kernel/auditfilter.c:1213: warning: ‘ndw’ may be used uninitialized in this function
kernel/auditfilter.c:1213: warning: ‘ndp’ may be used uninitialized in this function

...with a simplification of the code. audit_put_nd() can accept NULL
arguments, just like kfree(). It is cleaner to init two existing vars
to NULL, remove the redundant test variable 'putnd_needed' branches, and call
audit_put_nd() directly.

As a desired side effect, the warning goes away.
