Subject[PATCH 3.12 67/86] hostap: avoid uninitialized variable use in hfa384x_get_rid
Date
From: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de>

3.12-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

===============

commit 48dc5fb3ba53b20418de8514700f63d88c5de3a3 upstream.

The driver reads a value from hfa384x_from_bap(), which may fail,
and then assigns the value to a local variable. gcc detects that
in in the failure case, the 'rlen' variable now contains
uninitialized data:

In file included from ../drivers/net/wireless/intersil/hostap/hostap_pci.c:220:0:
drivers/net/wireless/intersil/hostap/hostap_hw.c: In function 'hfa384x_get_rid':
drivers/net/wireless/intersil/hostap/hostap_hw.c:842:5: warning: 'rec' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wmaybe-uninitialized]
if (le16_to_cpu(rec.len) == 0) {

This restructures the function as suggested by Russell King, to
make it more readable and get more reliable error handling, by
handling each failure mode using a goto.
