Unfortunately, scripts/Kbuild.extrawarn disables -Wuninitialized for
Clang, which also disables -Wsometimes-uninitialized:

https://github.com/ClangBuiltLinux/linux/issues/381
https://clang.llvm.org/docs/DiagnosticsReference.html#wuninitialized

I'm going to be sending out patches to fix the warnings found with it
then enable it going forward so that things like this get caught.
