I guess you forgot to remove the memset() here. Just to be clear, I
think this is how it should look like:

--- a/net/ipv6/xfrm6_state.c
+++ b/net/ipv6/xfrm6_state.c
@@ -60,11 +60,9 @@ xfrm6_init_temprop(struct xfrm_state *x, const struct xfrm_tmpl *tmpl,

- int i;
+ int count[XFRM_MAX_DEPTH] = { };
int class[XFRM_MAX_DEPTH];
- int count[maxclass];
-
- memset(count, 0, sizeof(count));
+ int i;

for (i = 0; i < n; i++) {
int c;
