Subject: [GIT pull] core fix for 4.11

Linus,

please pull the latest core-urgent-for-linus git tree from:

   git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip.git core-urgent-for-linus

Prevent leaking kernel memory via /proc/$pid/syscall when the queried task
is not in a syscall.

Thanks,

	tglx
