Did you want to submit this a formal patch? Since no one from Broadcom
has chipped in yet, it'd probably be better to submit this for review
and get comments that way. I cannot imagine that this is any worse than
what is currently happening (adding uninitialized stack memory to
rx_bytes when jumping to next_rx) and I like it better than modifying
the goto statement.

This is the only other warning I run into in arm, arm64 and x86_64
all{yes,mod}config so I'd like to get it resolved soon so we can turn on
this warning for the whole kernel.

Cheers,
Nathan
