Subject[PATCH 4.0 39/72] arm64: dma-mapping: always clear allocated buffers
Date
4.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Marek Szyprowski <m.szyprowski@samsung.com>

commit 6829e274a623187c24f7cfc0e3d35f25d087fcc5 upstream.

Buffers allocated by dma_alloc_coherent() are always zeroed on Alpha,
ARM (32bit), MIPS, PowerPC, x86/x86_64 and probably other architectures.
It turned out that some drivers rely on this 'feature'. Allocated buffer
might be also exposed to userspace with dma_mmap() call, so clearing it
is desired from security point of view to avoid exposing random memory
to userspace. This patch unifies dma_alloc_coherent() behavior on ARM64
architecture with other implementations by unconditionally zeroing
allocated buffer.
