io_apic.c --> "nr_ioapics" not initialized !

after a walk through the module "io_apic.c" in "/usr/src/linux/arch/x86/kernel/apic" I got the impression that the variable "nr_ioapics" is used but isn't initialized !
Could it be the source of boot problems ?

Dangerous coding stile in "static struct resource * __init ioapic_setup_resources(int nr_ioapics)" ....
