[Qemu-devel] [PATCH] exec.c: Initialize sa_flags passed to sigaction()
Posted by Peter Maydell, 1 week ago
Coverity points out that in the user-only version of cpu_abort() we
call sigaction() with a partially initialized struct sigaction
(CID 1005351). Correct the omission.

I'd have used the more generic:

           struct sigaction act = { };

That's a gcc/clang extension (although we have used it before, 
particularly to shut up buggy versions of clang); better is:

struct sigaction act = { 0 };

if that doesn't trigger the clang bug.

The sigfillset() has to be done after initialization, but you could also 
use:

struct sigaction act = {
   .sa_handler = SIG_DFL;
};
sigfillset(&act.sa_mask);

as a way to zero-initialize all other fields.
