Interesting.  Here is for "gcc -Os" on top to appease gcc 4.8.4 that
I probably am NOT going to apply.  These are all false positives.

The ones on config.c is the most curious as these two "ret" needs a
false initialization, but the one that comes after them
git_config_ulong() that has the same code structure does not get any
warning, which made absolutely no sense to me.
