Thanks for the detailed bug report! I remember hearing about this
problem (or perhaps noticing it myself) a long time ago, but for
some reason it didn't get cleaned up back then even though the reason
was known. I committed the fix to to the master branch (it will be in
v5.2 before 5.2.3).

[xz-devel] valgrind conditional jump depends on uninitialized value

2015-11-03 Thread Rich Prohaska
Valgrind is reporting a uninitialized value problem when using xz library.

mf->size is read is lz_encoder.c:226 before initialized. mf is
allocated in lz_encoder.c:532, buffer is iniitalized, size is NOT
initialized.  gcc 4.9 apparently compiles lz_encoder.c:231 into code
that uses old_size before the buffer != NULL check occurs.

set mf->size = 0 after allocation in lz_encoder.c:532.
