Very odd, with this patch applied, I now get a build warning:

drivers/staging/lustre/lnet/lnet/config.c: In function ‘lnet_parse_ip2nets’:
drivers/staging/lustre/lnet/lnet/config.c:1193:2: warning: ‘ipaddrs’ may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wmaybe-uninitialized]
  lnet_ipaddr_free_enumeration(ipaddrs, nip);
  ^

Now your patch didn't cause this, it seems gcc didn't notice it before.
So I'll queue up your patch, but generally, adding build warnings is not
a good thing.

thanks,

greg k-h
