Subject[64/80] xfs: prevent reading uninitialized stack memory
2.6.35-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Dan Rosenberg <dan.j.rosenberg@gmail.com>

commit a122eb2fdfd78b58c6dd992d6f4b1aaef667eef9 upstream.

The XFS_IOC_FSGETXATTR ioctl allows unprivileged users to read 12
bytes of uninitialized stack memory, because the fsxattr struct
declared on the stack in xfs_ioc_fsgetxattr() does not alter (or zero)
the 12-byte fsx_pad member before copying it back to the user. This
patch takes care of it.
