Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 190/192] net: stmmac: Avoid one more sometimes uninitialized Clang warning
Date
From: Nathan Chancellor <natechancellor@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit 1f5d861f7fefa971b2c6e766f77932c86419a319 ]

When building with -Wsometimes-uninitialized, Clang warns:

drivers/net/ethernet/stmicro/stmmac/stmmac_ptp.c:111:2: error: variable
'ns' is used uninitialized whenever 'if' condition is false
[-Werror,-Wsometimes-uninitialized]
drivers/net/ethernet/stmicro/stmmac/stmmac_ptp.c:111:2: error: variable
'ns' is used uninitialized whenever '&&' condition is false
[-Werror,-Wsometimes-uninitialized]

Clang is concerned with the use of stmmac_do_void_callback (which
stmmac_get_systime wraps), as it may fail to initialize these values if
the if condition was ever false (meaning the callback doesn't exist).
It's not wrong because the callback is what initializes ns. While it's
unlikely that the callback is going to disappear at some point and make
that condition false, we can easily avoid this warning by zero
initializing the variable.
