compiler: Remove uninitialized_var() macro
Using uninitialized_var() is dangerous as it papers over real bugs[1] (or can in the future), and suppresses unrelated compiler warnings (e.g. "unused variable"). If the compiler thinks it is uninitialized, either simply initialize the variable or make compiler changes. As recommended[2] by[3] Linus[4], remove the macro. With the recent change to disable -Wmaybe-uninitialized in v5.7 in commit 78a5255ffb6a ("Stop the ad-hoc games with -Wno-maybe-initialized"), this is likely the best time to make this treewide change.
