From: Ben Hutchings
Date: Wed Jul 31 2013 - 09:28:45 EST

3.2.50-rc1 review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Dan Carpenter <dan.carpenter@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit de1e0c40aceb9d5bff09c3a3b97b2f1b178af53f upstream.

The ->reserved field isn't cleared so we leak one byte of stack
information to userspace.
