Subject[PATCH 3.18 07/47] x86/mtrr: Dont copy uninitialized gentry fields back to userspace
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@canonical.com>

commit 32043fa065b51e0b1433e48d118821c71b5cd65d upstream.

Currently the copy_to_user of data in the gentry struct is copying
uninitiaized data in field _pad from the stack to userspace.

Fix this by explicitly memset'ing gentry to zero, this also will zero any
compiler added padding fields that may be in struct (currently there are
none).

Detected by CoverityScan, CID#200783 ("Uninitialized scalar variable")

Fixes: b263b31e8ad6 ("x86, mtrr: Use explicit sizing and padding for the 64-bit ioctls")
