Subject[PATCH] infiniband: avoid uninitialized variable warning in create_udata
Date
As Dan pointed out, the rework I did makes it harder for smatch and other
static checkers to figure out what is going on with the uninitialized
pointers.

By open-coding the call in create_udata(), we make it more readable for
both humans and tools.

Reported-by: Dan Carpenter <dan.carpenter@oracle.com>
Fixes: 12f727721eee ("IB/uverbs: clean up INIT_UDATA_BUF_OR_NULL usage")
