Subject: [PATCH 4.4 051/230] powerpc: Always initialize input array when calling epapr_hypercall()

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

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

From: Seth Forshee <seth.forshee@...onical.com>

commit 186b8f1587c79c2fa04bfa392fdf084443e398c1 upstream.

Several callers to epapr_hypercall() pass an uninitialized stack
allocated array for the input arguments, presumably because they
have no input arguments. However this can produce errors like
this one

 arch/powerpc/include/asm/epapr_hcalls.h:470:42: error: 'in' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Werror=maybe-uninitialized]
  unsigned long register r3 asm("r3") = in[0];
                                        ~~^~~

Fix callers to this function to always zero-initialize the input
arguments array to prevent this.
