In particular, gcc issues an "'gzip_size' might be used uninitialized"
warning (-Wuninitialized). However, this warning is a false positive,
since the 'gzip_size' variable would not, in fact, be used uninitialized.
In order to suppress the warning, we simply initialise the variable to
zero in it's declaration.
