Subject[PATCH 7/3] perfcounter: Zeroe dead bytes from ftrace raw samples size alignment
Date
After aligning the ftrace raw samples, there are dead bytes storing
random data from the stack. We don't want to leak these to userspace,
then zeroe these out.

Before:

0x2de88 [0x50]: event: 9
.
. ... raw event: size 80 bytes
. 0000: 09 00 00 00 01 00 50 00 d0 c7 00 81 ff ff ff ff ......P........
