[NET]: Auto-zero the allocated sock object
Pavel Emelyanov [Thu, 1 Nov 2007 07:34:42 +0000 (00:34 -0700)]
We have a __GFP_ZERO flag that allocates a zeroed chunk of memory.
Use it in the sk_alloc() and avoid a hand-made memset().

This is a temporary patch that will help us in the nearest future :)
