[Intel-gfx] [PATCH] drm/i915: Pevent copying uninitialised garbage into vma->ggtt_view

Since tweaking i915_vma_compare() we allowed constructors to skip
clearing the ggtt_view believing that we didn't access the unused
members. That, as it turns out, was not entirely true. In particular,
i915_gem_fault() uses

    ret = remap_io_mapping(area,
	    area->vm_start + (vma->ggtt_view.partial.offset << PAGE_SHIFT),
	    (ggtt->mappable_base + vma->node.start) >> PAGE_SHIFT,
	    min_t(u64, vma->size, area->vm_end - area->vm_start),

i.e. the ggtt_view.partial for both normal and partial views. If we
allowed garbage into the normal vma->ggtt_view and then try userspace
tried to mmap it, we could explode in an unobvious fashion.
