Subject[ 021/184] kernel/signal.c: stop info leak via the tkill and
2.6.32-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
the tgkill syscalls

From: Emese Revfy <re.emese@gmail.com>

commit b9e146d8eb3b9ecae5086d373b50fa0c1f3e7f0f upstream.

This fixes a kernel memory contents leak via the tkill and tgkill syscalls
for compat processes.

This is visible in the siginfo_t->_sifields._rt.si_sigval.sival_ptr field
when handling signals delivered from tkill.

The place of the infoleak:

int copy_siginfo_to_user32(compat_siginfo_t __user *to, siginfo_t *from)
{
...
put_user_ex(ptr_to_compat(from->si_ptr), &to->si_ptr);
...
}
