netfilter: ctnetlink: fix gcc warning during compilation
Pablo Neira Ayuso [Wed, 22 Apr 2009 09:26:37 +0000 (02:26 -0700)]
This patch fixes a (bogus?) gcc warning during compilation:

net/netfilter/nf_conntrack_netlink.c:1234: warning: 'helpname' may be used uninitialized in this function
net/netfilter/nf_conntrack_netlink.c:991: warning: 'helpname' may be used uninitialized in this function

In fact, helpname is initialized by ctnetlink_parse_help() so
I cannot see a way to use it without being initialized.
