Subject: [PATCH tj-percpu 1/3] percpu: kill compile warning in pcpu_populate_chunk()

Impact: remove compile warning

Mark local variable map_end in pcpu_populate_chunk() with
uninitialized_var().  The variable is always used in tandem with
map_start and guaranteed to be initialized before use but gcc doesn't
understand that.
