   spi: qup: hide warning for uninitialized variable

has been applied to the spi tree at


All being well this means that it will be integrated into the linux-next
tree (usually sometime in the next 24 hours) and sent to Linus during
the next merge window (or sooner if it is a bug fix), however if
problems are discovered then the patch may be dropped or reverted.  

You may get further e-mails resulting from automated or manual testing
and review of the tree, please engage with people reporting problems and
send followup patches addressing any issues that are reported if needed.

If any updates are required or you are submitting further changes they
should be sent as incremental updates against current git, existing
patches will not be replaced.

Please add any relevant lists and maintainers to the CCs when replying

Subject: [PATCH] spi: qup: hide warning for uninitialized variable

The added conditionals in this function apparently confused
gcc to the point that it no longer sees the code is safe and
instead shows a false-positive warning:

drivers/spi/spi-qup.c: In function 'spi_qup_transfer_one':
drivers/spi/spi-qup.c:507:28: error: 'tx_nents' may be used uninitialized in 
this function [-Werror=maybe-uninitialized]
drivers/spi/spi-qup.c:464:17: note: 'tx_nents' was declared here
drivers/spi/spi-qup.c:505:28: error: 'rx_nents' may be used uninitialized in 
this function [-Werror=maybe-uninitialized]
drivers/spi/spi-qup.c:464:7: note: 'rx_nents' was declared here

This moves the initialization to a place that makes it obvious
to the compiler.
