[PATCH] misc: ioc4: fix variable may be used uninitialized warning

From: Richard Leitner
Date: Mon Dec 08 2014 - 07:26:56 EST

Fix the following build warning:
drivers/misc/ioc4.c: In function âioc4_probeâ:
drivers/misc/ioc4.c:194:16: warning: âstartâ may be used uninitialized
in this function [-Wmaybe-uninitialized]
period = (end - start) /
drivers/misc/ioc4.c:148:11: note: âstartâ was declared here
uint64_t start, end, period;

As far as I can tell 'start' cannot really be used uninitialized
here, but for the sanity of gcc output explicitly initialize it.
Same goes for the 'end' variable.

Signed-off-by: Richard Leitner <dev@xxxxxxxxxx>
Used gcc version was 4.9.1 (Debian 4.9.1-19)
P.S.: I know I'm too late for 3.18 but hopefully it still helps.
