Subject[48/74] econet: 4 byte infoleak to the network
2.6.32-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Vasiliy Kulikov <segoon@openwall.com>

commit 67c5c6cb8129c595f21e88254a3fc6b3b841ae8e upstream.

struct aunhdr has 4 padding bytes between 'pad' and 'handle' fields on
x86_64. These bytes are not initialized in the variable 'ah' before
sending 'ah' to the network. This leads to 4 bytes kernel stack
infoleak.

This bug was introduced before the git epoch.
