[PATCH 3.18 24/38] isdn: kcapi: avoid uninitialized data

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Fri Dec 22 2017 - 03:48:31 EST

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


From: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@xxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit af109a2cf6a9a6271fa420ae2d64d72d86c92b7d ]

gcc-7 points out that the AVMB1_ADDCARD ioctl results in an unintialized
value ending up in the cardnr parameter:

drivers/isdn/capi/kcapi.c: In function 'old_capi_manufacturer':
drivers/isdn/capi/kcapi.c:1042:24: error: 'cdef.cardnr' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Werror=maybe-uninitialized]
cparams.cardnr = cdef.cardnr;

This has been broken since before the start of the git history, so
either the value is not used for anything important, or the ioctl
command doesn't get called in practice.

Setting the cardnr to zero avoids the warning and makes sure
we have consistent behavior.
