Subject: [PATCH 3.11 82/94] drm: Pad drm_mode_get_connector to 64-bit boundary

3.11-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Chris Wilson <chris@...is-wilson.co.uk>

commit bc5bd37ce48c66e9192ad2e7231e9678880f6f8e upstream.

Pavel Roskin reported that DRM_IOCTL_MODE_GETCONNECTOR was overwritting
the 4 bytes beyond the end of its structure with a 32-bit userspace
running on a 64-bit kernel. This is due to the padding gcc inserts as
the drm_mode_get_connector struct includes a u64 and its size is not a
natural multiple of u64s.

64-bit kernel:

sizeof(drm_mode_get_connector)=80, alignof=8
sizeof(drm_mode_get_encoder)=20, alignof=4
sizeof(drm_mode_modeinfo)=68, alignof=4

32-bit userspace:

sizeof(drm_mode_get_connector)=76, alignof=4
sizeof(drm_mode_get_encoder)=20, alignof=4
sizeof(drm_mode_modeinfo)=68, alignof=4

Fortuituously we can insert explicit padding to the tail of our
structures without breaking ABI.
