The 'timeout' variable will be initialized only when bus->multi_master
is true to save some OPs in case this variable isn't used. The saved OPs
are not expensive but it makes a meaning because this function is called
very frequently on every master transfer.

If bus->multi_master is false then it doesn't fall through so the
'timeout' variable in below will not be used when itself is
uninitialized. Also, bus->multi_master is fixed at probing time and it
doesn't change at runtime so the warning case never happens.
