[PATCH] /fs/proc/: 'larger than buffer size' memory accessed by clear_user()
Address a potential 'larger than buffer size' memory access by clear_user(). Without this patch, this call to clear_user() can attempt to clear too many (tsz) bytes resulting in a wrong (-EFAULT) return code by read_kcore(). Signed-off-by: Adam B.
