[U-Boot-Users] Possible problem in cmd_nvedit.c

Hello U-boot group.

Whilst working in the above file, I noticed a possible bug in:

int do_printenv (cmd_tbl_t *cmdtp, int flag, int argc, char *argv[])
   int i, j, k, nxt;
   int rcode = 0;

	if (argc == 1) {	/* Print all env variables	*/
		for (i=0; env_get_char(i) != '\0'; i=nxt+1) {

The problem is with nxt.  Now unless something magical is happening
it appears to me that nxt is used without initialisation to modify
i in the for-loop.

I checked the values before and after use and the dissasembly is here
for you ARM assembly gurus.  The worrying thing is that it
appears to work but is contains an address previous to its first use.
