Walsh, Conor Nov. 19, 2020, 3 p.m. UTC
On Ubuntu 18.04 using gcc 7.5, gcc sees size and start as possibly being
uninitialized. This patch initialises size and start to correct this
warning.

Exact warning:
../drivers/raw/ifpga/base/opae_intel_max10.c:488:22: warning: ‘size’
may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wmaybe-uninitialized]
raw->regs[i].size = size;
../drivers/raw/ifpga/base/opae_intel_max10.c:484:25: warning: ‘start’
may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wmaybe-uninitialized]
raw->regs[i].regoff = start;

Fixes: 45f301724ba7 ("raw/ifpga/base: support sensor")

This also looks a compiler false positive, at least it would be good to 
highlight in the commit log that you are not fixing the code but false compiler 
warning.

And since the code is not in the data path, I guess it is OK to add 
initialization to silence the compiler.

But if the warnings doesn't break the build but just warnings, leaving them as 
it is also an option I think.
