Equivalenced variables are not initialized by your patch:

$ cat foo.f
      program main
      call foo
      subroutine foo
      print *,j
$ g77 -finit-local-zero foo.f && ./a.out
$ gfortran -finit-local-zero foo.f && ./a.out

This behavior is different from g77, so I think it should be either
documented, or the behavior changed to match g77.  Of course, if the
user specifies -finit-integer and -finit-real and equivalences the
values, he's on his own :-)
