kernel/signal.c: stop info leak via the tkill and the tgkill syscalls
commit b9e146d8eb3b9ecae5086d373b50fa0c1f3e7f0f upstream. This fixes a kernel memory contents leak via the tkill and tgkill syscalls for compat processes. This is visible in the siginfo_t->_sifields._rt.si_sigval.sival_ptr field when handling signals delivered from tkill. The place of the infoleak: int copy_siginfo_to_user32(compat_siginfo_t __user *to, siginfo_t *from) { ... put_user_ex(ptr_to_compat(from->si_ptr), &to->si_ptr); ... } Signed-off-by: Emese Revfy <re.emese@gmail.com> Reviewed-by: PaX Team <pageexec@freemail.hu> Signed-off-by: Kees Cook <keescook@chromium.org> Cc: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk> Cc: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com> Cc: "Eric W.
