gcc 11 with '-O2' complains about some variables being used without
being initialized:

Indeed, these variables are not explicitly initialized,
but this is done intentionally.
We rely on constant mask value that we pass to start_flow*() functions
as a parameter Note that gcc 11 with '-O3' and gcc 9/10 with both
'-O2' and '-O3' doesn't produce this warning, same as clang.
Which makes me think that they are able to successfully propagate
this constant mask value though the code.
Also even gcc 11 with '-O2' produces a warning, it is able to generate
an output binary with properly propagated constant values.
Anyway, to support clean build with gcc-11 this patch adds
explicit initialization for these variables.
I checked the output binary: with '-O3' both clang and gcc 10/11
generate no extra code for it.
Also performance test didn't reveal any regressions.
