[edk2-devel] [PATCH] ArmVirtPkg/PlatformPeiLib: add dummy assignment to work around older GCC

Posted by Ard Biesheuvel 1 week ago
Older GCC (<= 4.9) fail to infer that Parent is never used unless it
has been assigned before, and may throw an error like

  /work/git/edk2/ArmVirtPkg/Library/PlatformPeiLib/PlatformPeiLib.c:
      In function ‘PlatformPeim’:
  /work/git/edk2/ArmVirtPkg/Library/PlatformPeiLib/PlatformPeiLib.c:132:24:
      error: ‘Parent’ may be used uninitialized in this function
                                                [-Werror=maybe-uninitialized]
             RangesProp = fdt_getprop (Base, Parent, "ranges", &RangesLen);

Set Parent to 0 at the start of the sequence to work around this.
