Subject[patch 38/58] agp: zero pages before sending to userspace
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
upstream commit: 59de2bebabc5027f93df999d59cc65df591c3e6e

CVE-2009-1192

AGP pages might be mapped into userspace finally, so the pages should be
set to zero before userspace can use it. Otherwise there is potential
information leakage.
