SubjectRe: linux-next: build warning after merge of the cifs tree
I don't see this with gcc 5.4

Stephen,
Harmless to initialize flags here ... even if unneeded ... so if it
makes your life easier I don't mind initializes to 0. Let me know.
Wonder why it doesn't generate the warning on the various other places
in the fs that do the same thing?
