[PATCH] rtc: armada38x: hide maybe-uninitialized warning

The function is too complicated for gcc to realize that this variable
does eventually get initialized, causing a harmless warning:

drivers/rtc/rtc-armada38x.c: In function 'read_rtc_register_wa':
drivers/rtc/rtc-armada38x.c:131:25: warning: 'index_max' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wmaybe-uninitialized]

This adds an explicit initializion at the start of the function.
I generally try to avoid that, but it seems appropriate here,
as we start out with max=0 as well.
