Subject: [dpdk-stable] [PATCH v2] acl: fix build with gcc 11
Date: Mon, 26 Apr 2021 14:35:19 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

gcc 11 with '-O2' complains about some variables being used without
being initialized:

In file included from ../lib/librte_acl/acl_run_avx512x8.h:201,
                 from ../lib/librte_acl/acl_run_avx512.c:110:

Indeed, these variables are not explicitly initialized,
but this is done intentionally.
We rely on constant mask value that we pass to start_flow*() functions
as a parameter to mask out uninitialized values.
Note that '-O3' doesn't produce this warning.
Anyway, to support clean build with gcc-11 this patch adds
explicit initialization for these variables.
I checked the output binary: with '-O3' both clang and gcc 10/11
generate no extra code for it.
Also performance test didn't reveal any regressions.
