Subject[41/80] drivers/video/sis/sis_main.c: 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 fd02db9de73faebc51240619c7c7f99bee9f65c7 upstream.

The FBIOGET_VBLANK device ioctl allows unprivileged users to read 16 bytes
of uninitialized stack memory, because the "reserved" member of the
fb_vblank struct declared on the stack is not altered or zeroed before
being copied back to the user. This patch takes care of it.
