Subject[PATCH 3.18 47/56] udl-kms: fix crash due to uninitialized memory
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Mikulas Patocka <mpatocka@redhat.com>

commit 09a00abe3a9941c2715ca83eb88172cd2f54d8fd upstream.

We must use kzalloc when allocating the fb_deferred_io structure.
Otherwise, the field first_io is undefined and it causes a crash.
