[PATCH] PKCS#7: pkcs7_validate_trust(): initialize the _trusted output argument

From: Nicolai Stange
Date: Sun Mar 20 2016 - 18:24:06 EST

Despite what the DocBook comment to pkcs7_validate_trust() says, the
*_trusted argument is never set to false.

pkcs7_validate_trust() only positively sets *_trusted upon encountering
a trusted PKCS#7 SignedInfo block.

This is quite unfortunate since its callers, system_verify_data() for
example, depend on pkcs7_validate_trust() clearing *_trusted on non-trust.

Indeed, UBSAN splats when attempting to load the uninitialized local
variable 'trusted' from system_verify_data() in pkcs7_validate_trust():

UBSAN: Undefined behaviour in crypto/asymmetric_keys/pkcs7_trust.c:194:14
load of value 82 is not a valid value for type '_Bool'

The implication is that pkcs7_validate_trust() effectively grants trust
when it really shouldn't have.

Fix this by explicitly setting *_trusted to false at the very beginning
of pkcs7_validate_trust().
