It's always preferable IMHO to keep any initialisation as localised as
possible, so that the compiler can continue to warn about uninitialised
usages elsewhere. In this case that would mean doing the rc = 0 in the
switch, something like:

diff --git a/drivers/scsi/ibmvscsi/ibmvscsi.c b/drivers/scsi/ibmvscsi/ibmvscsi.c
index 727c31dc11a0..7ee5755cf636 100644

break;
+ case IBMVSCSI_HOST_ACTION_NONE:
+ case IBMVSCSI_HOST_ACTION_UNBLOCK:
default:

break;
}

But then that makes me wonder if that's actually correct?

If we get an action that we don't recognise should we just throw it away
like that? (by doing hostdata->action = IBMVSCSI_HOST_ACTION_NONE). Tyrel?

cheers
