Description of problem:


I just tried to compile package libcap-1_10-16 from Fedora.

The compiler said

1.

cap_extint.c(94): remark #592: variable "cap_d" is used before its 
value is set

The source code is

    cap_t cap_d;
    int set, blen;
    __u32 * to = (__u32 *) &cap_d->set;




Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
libcap-1_10-16 

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. by inspection
2.
3.

that's more an unnecessary compiler warning than a bug in libcap.
to is set to the same memory address as cap_d->set, there doesn't need
to be anything useful in cap_d->set.
gcc-3.3.2-5 doesn't write this warning anymore.
