Subject[71/74] CAN: Use inode instead of kernel address for /proc file
2.6.32-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Dan Rosenberg <drosenberg@vsecurity.com>

commit 9f260e0efa4766e56d0ac14f1aeea6ee5eb8fe83 upstream.

Since the socket address is just being used as a unique identifier, its
inode number is an alternative that does not leak potentially sensitive
information.

CC-ing stable because MITRE has assigned CVE-2010-4565 to the issue.
