SubjectRe: [PATCH] clocksource: atmel-st: Variable sr in at91rm9200_timer_interrupt() could be uninitialized
In function regmap_read(),  there're two places which could make the read fail.

First, if "reg" and "map->reg_stride" are not aligned, then remap_read() will
return -EINVAL without initialize variable "val".

Second, _regmap_read() could also fail and return error code if "val" is not
initialized. The caller remap_read() returns the same error code, but
at91rm9200_timer_interrupt() does not use this information.
