    Another M$ legacy relict. On Microsoft C compilers (older ones) failure to
    initialize global data produces undefined results since they do not always
    zero out memory and global data -- they still do not in all cases.

    I will remove this a well. Still more checkpatch.pl stuff for me to do.
    am down to about 3000+ noisy messages now ...
