blk-mq: initialize 'struct request' and associated data to zero
Jan Engelhardt reports a strange oops with an invalid ->sense_buffer pointer in scsi_init_cmd_errh() with the blk-mq code. The sense_buffer pointer should have been initialized by the call to scsi_init_request() from blk_mq_init_rq_map(), but there seems to be some non-repeatable memory corruptor. This patch makes sure we initialize the whole struct request allocation (and the associated 'struct scsi_cmnd' for the SCSI case) to zero, by using __GFP_ZERO in the allocation. The old code initialized a couple of individual fields, leaving the rest undefined (although many of them are then initialized in later phases, like blk_mq_rq_ctx_init() etc. It's not entirely clear why this matters, but it's the rigth thing to do regardless, and with 4.0 imminent this is the defensive "let's just make sure everything is initialized properly" patch.
