As far as I know, valgrind does not check semantics or analyze code in
any way. It instruments the x86 assembler so to check against these

So if it mentioned an uninitialized memory read - the read actually
happened. That is, unitialized memory was read by the assembler code.

Atleast, this is how I think valgrind works - please correct me if I'm
wrong so I don't confuse more people :)
