libmisc/stackchk/check.c: unclean code

Reported by: Ralf Corsepius Owned by: Joel Sherrill

Another serious warning GCC emits:

../../../../../../c/src/../../cpukit/libmisc/stackchk/check.c:413: warning: 'stack' may be used uninitialized in this function
../../../../../../c/src/../../cpukit/libmisc/stackchk/check.c:384: warning: 'low' may be used uninitialized in this function

The code in question reads:

void *low;


Stack_Control *stack;



if (the_thread == (Thread_Control *) -1) {

if (!Stack_check_Interrupt_stack.area)


stack = &Stack_check_Interrupt_stack;
the_thread = 0;
current = 0;

} else



stack = &the_thread->Start.Initial_stack;
current = (void *)_CPU_Context_Get_SP( &the_thread->Registers );


low = Stack_check_usable_stack_start(stack);
size = Stack_check_usable_stack_size(stack);


I.e. stack will be uninitialized in case
and if the_thread != -1

No idea how to fix this.
