Correct, this is a remainder of code present temporarily during development.
Will drop.

(where are the days gcc itself warned about that?)

Thanks, will fix.

So newer gcc is (again) no longer smart enough to notice the check is
the same for initializer and user...

TBH, I'm not a big fan of silencing false positives.
But if people like to see flags preinitialized to zero, that can be done...

Thanks, looking forward to the results!
