clang static analysis flags this garbarge return
fs/splice.c:786:2: warning: Undefined or garbage value returned to caller [core.uninitialized.UndefReturn]
        return ret;
        ^~~~~~~~~~

ssize_t
iter_file_splice_write( ... size_t len, ..
	sd.total_len = len

	ssize_t ret;

	while (sd.total_len) {
	      ...
	      ret =
	}

If the input len is 0, the while loop will never run and ret will
not be set.

So handle similar to splice_direct_to_actor and initialize ret to 0
