What are you looking at? Here is how it looks in linux-next:
271 if (!get_builtin_microcode(&cp, x86_family(cpuid_1_eax)))
272 cp = find_microcode_in_initrd(path, use_pa);
If get_builtin_microcode() returns false, then cp is initialized on the
Maybe the issue is that cp.name is uninitialized. It doesn't cause an
issue but it would be understandable for a static checker to warn about
it when we do "*ret = cp;".
