From: Vasiliy Kulikov <segoon@openwall.com>

BugLink: http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/801484

struct aunhdr has 4 padding bytes between 'pad' and 'handle' fields on
x86_64.  These bytes are not initialized in the variable 'ah' before
sending 'ah' to the network.  This leads to 4 bytes kernel stack
infoleak.

This bug was introduced before the git epoch.
