For array variables defined in the function itself, isn't this usually
done with:

         int ret = 0;
-        u8 buf[ETH_ALEN];
+        u8 buf[ETH_ALEN] = {0};
         int i;
         unsigned long gpio_bits = dev->driver_info->data;

eg make the compiler do it (though maybe it's smart enough to elide the
memset, I don't know). See drivers/net/ethernet/intel/igb/e1000_mac.c
for an example.
