mm, slab: initialize object alignment on cache creation
Since commit 4590685546a3 ("mm/sl[aou]b: Common alignment code"), the "ralign" automatic variable in __kmem_cache_create() may be used as uninitialized. The proper alignment defaults to BYTES_PER_WORD and can be overridden by SLAB_RED_ZONE or the alignment specified by the caller. This fixes https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=85031 Signed-off-by: David Rientjes <rientjes@google.com> Reported-by: Andrei Elovikov <a.elovikov@gmail.com> Acked-by: Christoph Lameter <cl@linux.com> Cc: Pekka Enberg <penberg@kernel.org> Cc: Joonsoo Kim <iamjoonsoo.kim@lge.com> Cc: <stable@vger.kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
