    Subject[20/80] drivers/net/eql.c: prevent reading uninitialized stack memory
    2.6.35-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


    From: Dan Rosenberg <>

    commit 44467187dc22fdd33a1a06ea0ba86ce20be3fe3c upstream.

    Fixed formatting (tabs and line breaks).

    The EQL_GETMASTRCFG device ioctl allows unprivileged users to read 16
    bytes of uninitialized stack memory, because the "master_name" member of
    the master_config_t struct declared on the stack in eql_g_master_cfg()
    is not altered or zeroed before being copied back to the user. This
    patch takes care of it.
