Subject[031/127] ipc: shm: fix information leak to userland
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Vasiliy Kulikov <segooon@gmail.com>

commit 3af54c9bd9e6f14f896aac1bb0e8405ae0bc7a44 upstream.

The shmid_ds structure is copied to userland with shm_unused{,2,3}
fields unitialized. It leads to leaking of contents of kernel stack
memory.
