Subject[017/116] function-graph: Init curr_ret_stack with ret_stack
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Steven Rostedt <srostedt@redhat.com>

commit ea14eb714041d40fcc5180b5a586034503650149 upstream.

If the graph tracer is active, and a task is forked but the allocating of
the processes graph stack fails, it can cause crash later on.

This is due to the temporary stack being NULL, but the curr_ret_stack
variable is copied from the parent. If it is not -1, then in
ftrace_graph_probe_sched_switch() the following:

for (index = next->curr_ret_stack; index >= 0; index--)
next->ret_stack[index].calltime += timestamp;

Will cause a kernel OOPS.

Found with Li Zefan's ftrace_stress_test.
