crypto: user - fix info leaks in report API
Three errors resulting in kernel memory disclosure: 1/ The structures used for the netlink based crypto algorithm report API are located on the stack. As snprintf() does not fill the remainder of the buffer with null bytes, those stack bytes will be disclosed to users of the API. Switch to strncpy() to fix this. 2/ crypto_report_one() does not initialize all field of struct crypto_user_alg. Fix this to fix the heap info leak. 3/ For the module name we should copy only as many bytes as module_name() returns -- not as much as the destination buffer could hold. But the current code does not and therefore copies random data from behind the end of the module name, as the module name is always shorter than CRYPTO_MAX_ALG_NAME. Also switch to use strncpy() to copy the algorithm's name and driver_name. They are strings, after all.
