The sbitmap code that has just been turned into a library module
returns uninitialized data for sbitmap_weight(), as pointed out by
gcc when building with -Wmaybe-uninitialized:

lib/sbitmap.c: In function 'sbitmap_weight':
lib/sbitmap.c:179:9: error: 'weight' may be used uninitialized in this function 

Note that the value is never initialized, we just add data on
top, so it is wrong regardless of sb->map_nr.

This adds the missing initialization.

Thanks Arnd, Colin sent the same patch and I applied it. Note that:

Ok, thanks!

Fixes: 88459642cba4 ("blk-mq: abstract tag allocation out into sbitmap library")

that isn't truly correct, that patch is just what moved the code. The
bug predates that commit.

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;

I missed that, as I generally never use double inits in for loops, but I
guess I did for this one. But you are right, the bug was introduced with
the recent move, so your Fixes was completely correct.
