RxRPC: Allocate tokens with kzalloc to avoid oops in rxrpc_destroy
Anton Blanchard [Fri, 25 Feb 2011 15:33:17 +0000 (15:33 +0000)]
With slab poisoning enabled, I see the following oops:

  Unable to handle kernel paging request for data at address 0x6b6b6b6b6b6b6b73

We aren't initialising token->next, but the code in destroy_context relies
on the list being NULL terminated. Use kzalloc to zero out all the fields.
