 Found this in Coverity, CID:1108404

 But, I'm 99% sure it is just false positive. I created tihs ticket because
 it may be serious bug.

 Method BuildReportList reads what contains table of pointers of second
 parameter. But, this was uninitialized.

 I saw this is 99% false positive because if it's kernel mode this willn't
 crash machine. But I saw preprocessor constant with word USERLAND and I'm
 not sure if it's kernel mode. If it's,  setting this array to nulls is
 probably only wasting cpu cycles.
