Subject[RFC PATCH 2/2] bpf: Initialise mod[] in bpf_trace_printk
Date
In bpf_trace_printk(), the elements in mod[] are left uninitialised, but
they are then incremented to track the width of the formats. Zero
initialise the array just in case the memory contains non-zero values on
entry.

Fixes: 9c959c863f82 ("tracing: Allow BPF programs to call bpf_trace_printk()")

When I checked (on MIPS32), the elements tended to have the value zero
anyway (does BPF zero the stack or something clever?), so this is a
purely theoretical fix.
