Subject: [PATCH] can: janz-ican3: initialize dlc variable

From: Tom Rix <>

Clang static analysis reports this problem
janz-ican3.c:1311:2: warning: Undefined or garbage value returned to caller
        return dlc;

dlc is only set with this conditional
	if (!(cf->can_id & CAN_RTR_FLAG))
		dlc = cf->len;

But is always returned.  So initialize dlc to 0.

Fixes: cc4b08c31b5c ("can: do not increase tx_bytes statistics for RTR frames")
