    This popped up in IRC while attempting to disable write protection on the G2's nand (specific information on that is here):
    Code:
    <scotty2> static inline loff_t fat_make_i_pos(struct super_block *sb, <scotty2> struct buffer_head *bh, <scotty2> struct msdos_dir_entry *de) <scotty2> { <scotty2> return ((loff_t)bh->b_blocknr << MSDOS_SB(sb)->dir_per_block_bits) <scotty2> | (de - (struct msdos_dir_entry *)bh->b_data); <scotty2> } <scotty2> how the **** could de possibly be uninitialized. <scotty2> fs/fat/dir.c:30: error: 'de' may be used uninitialized in this function
    Anyone ever run into this before?

    You didn't provide any details. Compiler, compiler version, etc.

    G2 is an Android device. Android uses the linux kernel. This code looks like its part of the kernel. The android NDK contains GCC4.4 . So by deduction I say that was the compiler used.

    Please show the compiler invocation, and, crucially, the callsite of this function.

    Are you suggesting that the function was passed an uninitialized argument?
