Subject[PATCH 4.4 092/118] fix minor infoleak in get_user_ex()
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Al Viro <viro@ZenIV.linux.org.uk>

commit 1c109fabbd51863475cd12ac206bdd249aee35af upstream.

get_user_ex(x, ptr) should zero x on failure. It's not a lot of a leak
(at most we are leaking uninitialized 64bit value off the kernel stack,
and in a fairly constrained situation, at that), but the fix is trivial,
so...
