[Linux-kernel-mentees] [PATCH v2] drm/bufs: Prevent kernel-infoleak in copy_one_buf()

Currently `struct drm_buf_desc` is defined as follows:

struct drm_buf_desc {
	int count;
	int size;
	int low_mark;
	int high_mark;
	enum {
		_DRM_PAGE_ALIGN = 0x01,
		_DRM_AGP_BUFFER = 0x02,
		_DRM_SG_BUFFER = 0x04,
		_DRM_FB_BUFFER = 0x08,
		_DRM_PCI_BUFFER_RO = 0x10
	} flags;
	unsigned long agp_start;
};

copy_one_buf() is potentially copying uninitialized kernel stack memory
to userspace, since the compiler may leave such "holes" (around `.flags`
and `.agp_start` fields) in this statically allocated structure. Prevent
it by initializing `v` with memset().
