Subject: [PATCH 4.9 041/102] 9p: acl: fix uninitialized iattr access

[ Upstream commit e02a53d92e197706cad1627bd84705d4aa20a145 ]

iattr is passed to v9fs_vfs_setattr_dotl which does send various
values from iattr over the wire, even if it tells the server to
only look at iattr.ia_valid fields this could leak some stack data.
