Subject[02/80] USB: serial/mos*: prevent reading uninitialized stack memory
2.6.35-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Dan Rosenberg <drosenberg@vsecurity.com>

commit a0846f1868b11cd827bdfeaf4527d8b1b1c0b098 upstream.

The TIOCGICOUNT device ioctl in both mos7720.c and mos7840.c allows
unprivileged users to read uninitialized stack memory, because the
"reserved" member of the serial_icounter_struct struct declared on the
stack is not altered or zeroed before being copied back to the user.
This patch takes care of it.
