Subject[046/123] tracing: t_start: reset FTRACE_ITER_HASH in case of seek/pread
From: Chris Wright <chrisw@sous-sol.org>

commit df09162550fbb53354f0c88e85b5d0e6129ee9cc upstream.

Be sure to avoid entering t_show() with FTRACE_ITER_HASH set without
having properly started the iterator to iterate the hash. This case is
degenerate and, as discovered by Robert Swiecki, can cause t_hash_show()
to misuse a pointer. This causes a NULL ptr deref with possible security
implications. Tracked as CVE-2010-3079.
