SubjectRe: [PATCH] orangefs: remove redundant assignment to variable buffer_index
Hi Colin...

Thanks for the patch. Before I initialized buffer_index, Dan Williams sent
in a warning that a particular error path could try to use ibuffer_index
uninitialized. I could induce the problem he described with one
of the xfstests resulting in a crashed kernel. I will try to refactor
the code to fix the problem some other way than initializing
buffer_index in the declaration.
