Doesn't need to be set to zero AFAIK, since we do a mass initialization
to zero during boot up. Did you notice some type of failure when you
didn't initialize that to zero?

(checkpatch output below..)

ERROR: do not initialise externals to 0 or NULL
#97: FILE: arch/powerpc/kernel/idle.c:43:
+int boot_option_idle_override = 0;

Your patch has style problems, please review.  If any of these errors
are false positives report them to the maintainer, see
