[PATCH] ext4: fix potential unnitialized variable

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Smatch complains "err" can be uninitialized in the caller.

    fs/ext4/indirect.c:349 ext4_alloc_branch()
    error: uninitialized symbol 'err'.

Set the error to zero on the success path.

This is a static checker fix and I don't know this code very well...
Please review it extra carefully.
