Subject: [PATCH 5.0 50/52] mm, mempolicy: fix uninit memory access

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

commit 2e25644e8da4ed3a27e7b8315aaae74660be72dc upstream.

  __do_sys_mbind mm/mempolicy.c:1354 [inline]

As it's difficult to report where exactly the uninit value resides in
the mempolicy object, we have to guess a bit.  mm/mempolicy.c:353
contains this part of mpol_rebind_policy():

        if (!mpol_store_user_nodemask(pol) &&
            nodes_equal(pol->w.cpuset_mems_allowed, *newmask))

"mpol_store_user_nodemask(pol)" is testing pol->flags, which I couldn't
ever see being uninitialized after leaving mpol_new().  So I'll guess
it's actually about accessing pol->w.cpuset_mems_allowed on line 354,
but still part of statement starting on line 353.

For w.cpuset_mems_allowed to be not initialized, and the nodes_equal()
reachable for a mempolicy where mpol_set_nodemask() is called in
do_mbind(), it seems the only possibility is a MPOL_PREFERRED policy
with empty set of nodes, i.e.  MPOL_LOCAL equivalent, with MPOL_F_LOCAL
flag.  Let's exclude such policies from the nodes_equal() check.  Note
the uninit access should be benign anyway, as rebinding this kind of
policy is always a no-op.  Therefore no actual need for stable
inclusion.
