Don't just silent the warning. Usually gcc now properly detects where
there really is a problem, it should not be a false-positive. And in
looking at the code, it does seem that pblk could not be set if one of
the different case statements is taken and then exact_hitted: is jumped
to, right?

Or is gcc just being "dumb" here? What about clang, have you tried
building it with that compiler as well?

thanks,
