Subject[PATCH 3.18 024/145] Fix potential infoleak in older kernels
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

commit dc1555e670c373bfa4ca2e1e2f839d5fe2b4501a upstream.

Not upstream as it is not needed there.

So a patch something like this might be a safe way to fix the
potential infoleak in older kernels.

THIS IS UNTESTED. It's a very obvious patch, though, so if it compiles
it probably works. It just initializes the output variable with 0 in
the inline asm description, instead of doing it in the exception
handler.

It will generate slightly worse code (a few unnecessary ALU
operations), but it doesn't have any interactions with the exception
handler implementation.
