Subject: [PATCH] NFC: llcp: fix info leaks via msg_name in llcp_sock_recvmsg()

commit d26d6504f23e803824e8ebd14e52d4fc0a0b09cb upstream.

The code in llcp_sock_recvmsg() does not initialize all the members of
struct sockaddr_nfc_llcp when filling the sockaddr info. Nor does it
initialize the padding bytes of the structure inserted by the compiler
for alignment.

Also, if the socket is in state LLCP_CLOSED or is shutting down during
receive the msg_namelen member is not updated to 0 while otherwise
returning with 0, i.e. "success". The msg_namelen update is also
missing for stream and seqpacket sockets which don't fill the sockaddr

Both issues lead to the fact that the code will leak uninitialized
kernel stack bytes in net/socket.c.

Fix the first issue by initializing the memory used for sockaddr info
with memset(0). Fix the second one by setting msg_namelen to 0 early.
It will be updated later if we're going to fill the msg_name member.
