When DPDK is compiled with gcc 7.5 with the optimization level set to 1
gcc sees the offset variable in txgbe_ethdev.c as possibly being
uninitialised. To correct this error offset has been initialised to 0 in
txgbe_ethdev.c

This is false positive, right?
Is there an actual case that 'offset' is used without initialization?

'txgbe_get_offset_by_id()' return value seems used only to detect fail/success,
can you please try with 'txgbe_get_offset_by_id()' returning a simple '-1' on 
failure, instead of current "-(int)(id + 1)", if it helps with the compiler warning?
