I saw it in linux-next and sent a patch the other day, similar to yours,
but with a less verbose changelog:

Overall, I had not done regular randconfig testing since the start of
the year, and found 62 regressions that had crept in during that
period. There was no significant uptick in -Wmaybe-uninitialized
warnings, this is the only one I saw, so I'd classify this as random
change in behavior due to inlining differences rather than a systematic
(there was a noticeable change in other warnings, particularly a stack
size increase from the new structleak plugin changes, fix is coming).
