Yes, it fixes the build warning. I implemented a tiny test
program before sending the patch. In which I explicitly
set 'm=5' to check the change results:

[356843.099365] assertion failed: z, in /home/khaled/fs_btrfs/test3.c:30

From the above output message, I think that it catchs the assertion.
Sorry, but let me know if I am missing something.

I absolutly agree with you regarding the waste of memory
when doing some pointless initializations. I will, come
back with a V2.

Thanks.
