Structures "l2cap_conninfo" and "rfcomm_conninfo" have one padding
byte each. This byte in "cinfo" is copied to userspace uninitialized.

Your mail client mangles the patch, it should contain original
identation tabs, not spaces.  Please see Documentation/email-clients.txt.

Don't send 2 patches as one email.  Either send 2 email or merge them
into one patch (if they are similar changes).  You'll ease maintainers'

Please see Documentation/SubmittingPatches, chapter 12 to find out how
to sign the patch.

And please don't crosspost to oss-security and LKML - send a separate
email to o-s with a short description of a bug and a link to the LKML
thread.  LKML thread is a place to argue and discuss the solution, but
o-s subscribers are probably not interested in such a discussion.
