f2fs: fix to initialize variable to avoid UBSAN/smatch warning

[ Upstream commit f9aa52a8 ]

As Dan Carpenter as below:

The patch df634f444ee9: "f2fs: use rb_*_cached friends" from Oct 4,
2018, leads to the following static checker warning:

	fs/f2fs/extent_cache.c:606 f2fs_update_extent_tree_range()
	error: uninitialized symbol 'leftmost'.

And also Eric Biggers, and Kyungtae Kim reported, there is an UBSAN
warning described as below:

We report a bug in linux-4.20.2: "UBSAN: Undefined behaviour in

kernel config:
repro: (f2fs is mounted on

This arose in f2fs_update_extent_tree_range (fs/f2fs/extent_cache.c:605).
It seems that, for some reason, its last argument became "24"
although that was supposed to be bool type.

UBSAN: Undefined behaviour in fs/f2fs/extent_cache.c:605:4

As I checked, this uninitialized variable won't cause extent cache
corruption, but in order to avoid such kind of warning of both UBSAN
and smatch, fix to initialize related variable.
