Can be reproduced with "make EXTRA_CFLAGS='-O1'" command using
gcc (GCC) 9.3.1 20200408 (Red Hat 9.3.1-2)

Build error:
In file included from .../drivers/mempool/octeontx2/otx2_mempool.h:13,
                from .../drivers/mempool/octeontx2/otx2_mempool_ops.c:8:
.../drivers/mempool/octeontx2/otx2_mempool_ops.c:
	In function ‘otx2_npa_alloc’:
.../drivers/common/octeontx2/otx2_common.h:94:2:
    error: ‘aura_handle’ may be used uninitialized in this function
           [-Werror=maybe-uninitialized]
   94 |  rte_log(RTE_LOG_DEBUG, otx2_logtype_ ## subsystem,  \
      |  ^~~~~~~
.../drivers/mempool/octeontx2/otx2_mempool_ops.c:643:11:
    note: ‘aura_handle’ was declared here
  643 |  uint64_t aura_handle;
      |           ^~~~~~~~~~~

This looks like false positive, assigning an initial value to
'aura_handle' to fix the build error.

This is assuming assigning initial value won't have a performance affect
if it does, we need to find another fix.
And overall not sure why this false positive warning is generated.

It is a false positive. Since it is on a slow path, This workaround is OK.
While merging t this patch, Could you move "uint64_t aura_handle = 0;"
just before "struct otx2_npa_lf *lf" as
the variables are ordered in reverse xmas tree format in this file.

With the above change:
