Subject[PATCH] ath11k: ensure ts.flags is initialized before bit-wise or'ing in values
From: Colin Ian King <>

Currently the structure ts is not inititalized and ts.flags contains
garbage values from the stack. This is being passed into function
ath11k_dp_tx_status_parse that bit-wise or'ing in settings into the
ts.flags field. To avoid flags (and other fields) from containing
garbage, initialize the structure to zero before use.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Uninitialized scalar variable)"
Fixes: d5c65159f289 ("ath11k: driver for Qualcomm IEEE 802.11ax devices")
