Clang warns:

drivers/scsi/hpsa.c:5964:6: warning: variable 'dev' is used
uninitialized whenever 'if' condition is true
        if (lockup_detected(h)) {
drivers/scsi/hpsa.c:6042:6: note: uninitialized use occurs here
        if (dev)
drivers/scsi/hpsa.c:5964:2: note: remove the 'if' if its condition is
always false
        if (lockup_detected(h)) {
drivers/scsi/hpsa.c:5950:29: note: initialize the variable 'dev' to
silence this warning
        struct hpsa_scsi_dev_t *dev;
                                    = NULL
1 warning generated.

dev is potentially used uninitialized in the return_reset_status block
for a NULL check if the first 'if (lockup_detected(h))' is taken, as
dev is initialized right after that block. Initialize dev to NULL in
its declaration so that it can be safely checked within the
return_reset_status block.
