A tag already exists with the provided branch name. Many Git commands accept both tag and branch names, so creating this branch may cause unexpected behavior. Are you sure you want to create this branch?

Building on gcc 4.4 reports "start may be used uninitialized". This is
a classical case of dependency between two variables where the compiler
lost track of their initialization and doesn't know that if one is not
set, the other is. By just moving the second test in the else clause
of the assignment both fixes it and makes the code more efficient, and
this can be simplified as a ternary operator.

It's probably not needed to backport this, unless anyone reports build
warnings with more recent compilers (intermediary optimization levels
such as -O1 can sometimes trigger such warnings).
