Subject[34-longterm 043/209] ipc: initialize structure memory to zero for compat functions
Date
From: Dan Rosenberg <drosenberg@vsecurity.com>

=====================================================================
| This is a commit scheduled for the next v2.6.34 longterm release. |
| If you see a problem with using this for longterm, please comment.|
=====================================================================

commit 03145beb455cf5c20a761e8451e30b8a74ba58d9 upstream.

This takes care of leaking uninitialized kernel stack memory to
userspace from non-zeroed fields in structs in compat ipc functions.
