Subject[PATCH 4.14 21/45] rds: do not leak kernel memory to user land
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Eric Dumazet <>

[ Upstream commit eb80ca476ec11f67a62691a93604b405ffc7d80c ]

syzbot/KMSAN reported an uninit-value in put_cmsg(), originating
from rds_cmsg_recv().

Simply clear the structure, since we have holes there, or since
rx_traces might be smaller than RDS_MSG_RX_DGRAM_TRACE_MAX.
