tracing: t_start: reset FTRACE_ITER_HASH in case of seek/pread
Chris Wright [Thu, 9 Sep 2010 23:34:59 +0000 (16:34 -0700)]
Be sure to avoid entering t_show() with FTRACE_ITER_HASH set without
having properly started the iterator to iterate the hash.  This case is
degenerate and, as discovered by Robert Swiecki, can cause t_hash_show()
to misuse a pointer.  This causes a NULL ptr deref with possible security
implications.  Tracked as CVE-2010-3079.
