Subject[PATCH 3.16 72/72] can: peak_usb: fix slab info leak
3.16.79-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Johan Hovold <>

commit f7a1337f0d29b98733c8824e165fca3371d7d4fd upstream.

Fix a small slab info leak due to a failure to clear the command buffer
at allocation.

The first 16 bytes of the command buffer are always sent to the device
in pcan_usb_send_cmd() even though only the first two may have been
initialised in case no argument payload is provided (e.g. when waiting
for a response).
