Subject[PATCH 5.2 90/94] x86/boot/compressed/64: Fix missing initialization in find_trampoline_placement()
Date
[ Upstream commit c96e8483cb2da6695c8b8d0896fe7ae272a07b54 ]

Gustavo noticed that 'new' can be left uninitialized if 'bios_start'
happens to be less or equal to 'entry->addr + entry->size'.

Initialize the variable at the begin of the iteration to the current value
of 'bios_start'.
