With gcc 4.1.2:

drivers/net/wireless/ath/ath10k/sdio.c: In function
‘ath10k_sdio_mbox_rxmsg_pending_handler’:
drivers/net/wireless/ath/ath10k/sdio.c:676: warning: ‘ret’ may be used
uninitialized in this function

Although very unlikely due to the long timeout, if the code is preempted here,
and the loop below never entered, ret will indeed be uninitialized.

It's unclear to me what the proper initialization would be, though, so
that's why I didn't send a patch.

Same here.

Should ret be preinitialized to 0, -ECANCELED, or something else?
