It's not important as long as the bug is fixed now, but I think it was
correct before that move, we just lost the 'used=0' initialization,
which also triggered the warning:

-static unsigned int bt_unused_tags(struct blk_mq_bitmap_tags *bt)
-{
-       unsigned int i, used;
-
-       for (i = 0, used = 0; i < bt->map_nr; i++) {
-               struct blk_align_bitmap *bm = &bt->map[i];
-
-               used += bitmap_weight(&bm->word, bm->depth);
        }
 
-       return bt->depth - used;
 }
