[PATCH linux-next v2] DM RAID: validate_raid_redundancy: Silence uninitialized variable warning

From: Tim Gardner
Date: Thu Feb 21 2013 - 09:50:42 EST

drivers/md/dm-raid.c:453:53: warning: 'rebuilds_per_group' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wuninitialized]
drivers/md/dm-raid.c:383:11: note: 'rebuilds_per_group' was declared here

It is impossible that rebuilds_per_group could be used before set, but set
it to 0 anyways to silence GCC warnings.

v2 - Added GCC comment. Update commit log with a more definite explanation.

As Neil has pointed out, https://lwn.net/Articles/529954/ indicates
uninitialized_var() is going away.
