[PATCH 1/2] FS-Cache: Add missing initialization of ret in cachefiles_write_page()

From: David Howells
Date: Thu Nov 12 2015 - 06:47:07 EST

From: Geert Uytterhoeven <geert@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

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")
