Subject[34-longterm 245/247] econet: 4 byte infoleak to the network
Date
From: Vasiliy Kulikov <segoon@openwall.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 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.
