Subject[34-longterm 117/209] V4L/DVB: ivtvfb: prevent reading uninitialized stack memory
Date
From: Dan Rosenberg <drosenberg@vsecurity.com>

=====================================================================
| This is a commit scheduled for the next v2.6.34 longterm release. |
| If you see a problem with using this for longterm, please comment.|
=====================================================================

commit 405707985594169cfd0b1d97d29fcb4b4c6f2ac9 upstream.

The FBIOGET_VBLANK device ioctl allows unprivileged users to read 16
bytes of uninitialized stack memory, because the "reserved" member of
the fb_vblank struct declared on the stack is not altered or zeroed
before being copied back to the user. This patch takes care of it.
