I agree that it should not have - but I did the bisect and this is the
patch where the warning was first observed. I agree that it is still gcc
being silly, and I don't know why it treats uninitialized ints different
than uninitialized unsigned ints (or why it thinks this value is every
used uninitialized for that matter).

Thanks for catching the compat-futex.c
