Subject[PATCH][next] drm/i915: fix uninitialized pointer reads on pointers to and from
From: Colin Ian King <>

Currently pointers to and from are not initialized and may contain
garbage values. This will cause uninitialized pointer reads in the
call to intel_frontbuffer_track and later checks to see if to and from
are null. Fix this by ensuring to and from are initialized to NULL.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Uninitialised pointer read)"
Fixes: da42104f589d ("drm/i915: Hold reference to intel_frontbuffer as we track activity")
