Subject: [PATCH 5/5] Drivers: hv: vmbus: Fix synic per-cpu context initialization

From: Michael Kelley <mikelley@...rosoft.com>

If hv_synic_alloc() errors out, the state of the per-cpu context
for some CPUs is unknown since the zero'ing is done as each
CPU is iterated over.  In such case, hv_synic_cleanup() may try to
free memory based on uninitialized values.  Fix this by zero'ing
the per-cpu context for all CPUs before doing any memory
allocations that might fail.
