Subject: net: ax25: fix information leak to userland
From: Vasiliy Kulikov <segooon@gmail.com>
commit fe10ae53384e48c51996941b7720ee16995cbcb7 upstream.
Sometimes ax25_getname() doesn't initialize all members of fsa_digipeater
field of fsa struct, also the struct has padding bytes between
sax25_call and sax25_ndigis fields. This structure is then copied to
userland. It leads to leaking of contents of kernel stack memory.
