Default xfs: zero proper structure size for geometry calls CVE-2011-0711

From: Alex Elder <aelder@sgi.com>

BugLink: http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/767740

Commit 493f3358cb289ccf716c5a14fa5bb52ab75943e5 added this call to
xfs_fs_geometry() in order to avoid passing kernel stack data back
to user space:

+ memset(geo, 0, sizeof(*geo));

Unfortunately, one of the callers of that function passes the
address of a smaller data type, cast to fit the type that
xfs_fs_geometry() requires. As a result, this can happen:

Kernel panic - not syncing: stack-protector: Kernel stack is corrupted
in: f87aca93

Pid: 262, comm: xfs_fsr Not tainted 2.6.38-rc6-493f3358cb2+ #1
Call Trace:

[<c12991ac>] ? panic+0x50/0x150
[<c102ed71>] ? __stack_chk_fail+0x10/0x18
[<f87aca93>] ? xfs_ioc_fsgeometry_v1+0x56/0x5d [xfs]

Fix this by fixing that one caller to pass the right type and then
copy out the subset it is interested in.

Note: This patch is an alternative to one originally proposed by
Eric Sandeen.
