Hi Sascha,

I get this warning about 1 month and it makes me crazy and I am unsing
"gcc (GCC) 4.9.0 20140604 (prerelease)".

Why I didn't sent any patches?
Because you say it here it's a compiler bug and the linux world doesn't
fix it this way. Look at [0].

"... since we will still want to catch unitialised use in the future,
should we were to changethe code." - which sounds useful.

They already add a comment to this. I think otherwise they get much
patches because this warning.

When I look into the current mainline code [1]. Then this is currently
not fixed in any way (comment or setting to NULL
