Subject: [PATCH] btrfs: work around false-positive -Wsometimes-uninitialized warning

clang fails to see that the last 'else if() in btrfs_uuid_tree_add()
is always true, so 'eb' is always initialized correctly:

fs/btrfs/uuid-tree.c:129:13: error: variable 'eb' is used uninitialized whenever 'if' condition is false [-Werror,-Wsometimes-uninitialized]
        } else if (ret < 0) {
                   ^~~~~~~
fs/btrfs/uuid-tree.c:139:22: note: uninitialized use occurs here
        write_extent_buffer(eb, &subid_le, offset, sizeof(subid_le));
                            ^~
fs/btrfs/uuid-tree.c:129:9: note: remove the 'if' if its condition is always true
        } else if (ret < 0) {
               ^~~~~~~~~~~~~
fs/btrfs/uuid-tree.c:90:26: note: initialize the variable 'eb' to silence this warning
        struct extent_buffer *eb;
                                ^
                                 = NULL

Change it into a plain 'else' to shut up that warning.
