SubjectRe: [PATCH] clk: fix false-positive Wmaybe-uninitialized warning
Quoting Arnd Bergmann (2018-02-16 07:27:47)
> When we build this driver with on x86-32, gcc produces a false-positive warning:
> drivers/clk/renesas/clk-sh73a0.c: In function 'sh73a0_cpg_clocks_init':
> drivers/clk/renesas/clk-sh73a0.c:155:10: error: 'parent_name' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Werror=maybe-uninitialized]
> return clk_register_fixed_factor(NULL, name, parent_name, 0,
> We can work around that warning by adding a fake initialization, I tried

> Don't define string functions to builtin") as a 'temporary workaround'.
> Like many temporary hacks, this turned out to be rather long-lived, from
