Subject: [dpdk-stable] [PATCH] eal: don't log uninitialized string
Date: Fri, 11 Dec 2020 09:06:15 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Our Coverity scan pointed out that path[] is never initialized.
The official DPDK Coverity has not reported this so there is
no public CID for it.

Fixes: c44d09811b40 ("eal: add shared indexed file-backed array")
