Disable "maybe-uninitialized" warning globally
commit 6e8d666e925333c55378e8d5540a8a9ee0eea9c5 upstream. Several build configurations had already disabled this warning because it generates a lot of false positives. But some had not, and it was still enabled for "allmodconfig" builds, for example. Looking at the warnings produced, every single one I looked at was a false positive, and the warnings are frequent enough (and big enough) that they can easily hide real problems that you don't notice in the noise generated by -Wmaybe-uninitialized. The warning is good in theory, but this is a classic case of a warning that causes more problems than the warning can solve. If gcc gets better at avoiding false positives, we may be able to re-enable this warning. But as is, we're better off without it, and I want to be able to see the *real* warnings.
