4.7-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Eric Biggers <ebigg...@google.com>

commit 5d0be84ec0cacfc7a6d6ea548afdd07d481324cd upstream.

If crypt_alloc_tfms() had to allocate multiple tfms and it failed before
the last allocation, then it would call crypt_free_tfms() and could free
pointers from uninitialized memory -- due to the crypt_free_tfms() check
for non-zero cc->tfms[i].  Fix by allocating zeroed memory.
