Subject: [PATCH 5.0 120/346] bcache: avoid clang -Wunintialized warning

[ Upstream commit 78d4eb8ad9e1d413449d1b7a060f50b6efa81ebd ]

clang has identified a code path in which it thinks a
variable may be unused:

drivers/md/bcache/alloc.c:333:4: error: variable 'bucket' is used uninitialized whenever 'if' condition is false
      [-Werror,-Wsometimes-uninitialized]
                        fifo_pop(&ca->free_inc, bucket);

            ^~

                                                                  ^~~~~~

        if (_r) {                                                       \
        ^
drivers/md/bcache/alloc.c:331:15: note: initialize the variable 'bucket' to silence this warning
                        long bucket;
                                   ^

This cannot happen in practice because we only enter the loop
if there is at least one element in the list.

Slightly rearranging the code makes this clearer to both the
reader and the compiler, which avoids the warning.
