[PATCH 4.2.y-ckt 036/305] FS-Cache: Add missing initialization of ret in cachefiles_write_page()

From: Kamal Mostafa
Date: Fri Jan 15 2016 - 20:31:44 EST

4.2.8-ckt2 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Geert Uytterhoeven <geert@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit cf89752645e47d86ba8a4157f4b121fcb33434c5 upstream.

fs/cachefiles/rdwr.c: In function âcachefiles_write_pageâ:
fs/cachefiles/rdwr.c:882: warning: âretâ may be used uninitialized in
this function

If the jump to label "error" is taken, "ret" will indeed be
uninitialized, and random stack data may be printed by the debug code.

Fixes: 102f4d900c9c8f5e ("FS-Cache: Handle a write to the page immediately beyond the EOF marker")
