So I think I've convinced myself that the warnings are incorrect and
that uninitialized use is not possible.
But I find it odd that gcc gives warnings for these sites but not others
in the file that use the same idiom (e.g. line_size_show,
nr_sets_show). I'd guess that inlining is implicated somehow. Would I
be justified in worrying that this version of gcc is generating
If not, then I'm fine with the uninitialized_var() changes, but do
please include the warnings and the compiler version in the changelog.
