Subject[033/139] include/linux/kfifo.h: fix INIT_KFIFO()
2.6.33-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: David Härdeman <david@hardeman.nu>

commit 530cd330dc3865e3107304a6e84fdc332aa72f7d upstream.

DECLARE_KFIFO creates a union with a struct kfifo and a buffer array with
size [size + sizeof(struct kfifo)].

INIT_KFIFO then sets the buffer pointer in struct kfifo to point to the
beginning of the buffer array which means that the first call to kfifo_in
will overwrite members of the struct kfifo.
