Default ipc: initialize structure memory to zero for compat functions CVE-2010-4073

From: Dan Rosenberg <drosenberg@vsecurity.com>

BugLink: http://bugs.laaunchpad.net/bugs/806366

commit upstream 6faca004a930b8aafd9c4bd58673ca7420aa2006

This takes care of leaking uninitialized kernel stack memory to
userspace from non-zeroed fields in structs in compat ipc functions.
