Subject: [PATCH][next] bnxt_en: ensure len is ininitialized to zero

From: Colin Ian King <>

In the case where cmp_type == CMP_TYPE_RX_L2_TPA_START_CMP the
exit return path is via label next_rx_no_prod and cpr->rx_bytes
is being updated by an uninitialized value from len. Fix this by
initializing len to zero.

Detected by CoverityScan, CID#1463807 ("Uninitialized scalar variable")
