[PATCH] mm/memcontrol: avoid a spurious gcc warning

From: Arnd Bergmann
Date: Mon Jan 25 2016 - 11:12:45 EST

When CONFIG_DEBUG_VM is set, the various VM_BUG_ON() confuse gcc to
the point where it cannot remember that 'memcg' is known to be initialized:

mm/memcontrol.c: In function 'mem_cgroup_can_attach':
mm/memcontrol.c:4791:9: warning: 'memcg' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wmaybe-uninitialized]

On ARM gcc-5.1, the above happens when any two or more of the VM_BUG_ON()
are active, but not when I remove most or all of them. This is clearly
random behavior and the only way I've found to shut up the warning is
to add an explicit initialization.
