Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.9 15/54] net/appletalk: Fix kernel memory disclosure
Date
From: Vlad Tsyrklevich <vlad@tsyrklevich.net>

[ Upstream commit ce7e40c432ba84da104438f6799d460a4cad41bc ]

ipddp_route structs contain alignment padding so kernel heap memory
is leaked when they are copied to user space in
ipddp_ioctl(SIOCFINDIPDDPRT). Change kmalloc() to kzalloc() to clear
that memory.
