Subject[063/152] net: ax25: fix information leak to userland
2.6.36-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------


From: Vasiliy Kulikov <segooon@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit fe10ae53384e48c51996941b7720ee16995cbcb7 ]

Sometimes ax25_getname() doesn't initialize all members of fsa_digipeater
field of fsa struct, also the struct has padding bytes between
sax25_call and sax25_ndigis fields. This structure is then copied to
userland. It leads to leaking of contents of kernel stack memory.
