Description David Binderman 2005-09-24 07:23:36 EDT
Description of problem:
I just tried to compile Fedora development package kexec-tools-1.101-2
with the extra compiler flag -Wall.

The compiler said

kexec/arch/i386/crashdump-x86.c:311: warning: 'temp_region.type' is used
uninitialized in this function

The source code is

                memmap_p[tidx+1] = temp_region;

It might be worthwhile to ensure that the whole of local data structure
temp_region is initialised to something sensible shortly after it is
defined, thus making sure that all execution paths get a sensible value
of local variable "temp_region".
