inotify: Fix reporting of cookies for inotify events
My rework of handling of notification events (namely commit 7053aee26a35 "fsnotify: do not share events between notification groups") broke sending of cookies with inotify events. We didn't propagate the value passed to fsnotify() properly and passed 4 uninitialized bytes to userspace instead (so it is also an information leak). Sadly I didn't notice this during my testing because inotify cookies aren't used very much and LTP inotify tests ignore them. Fix the problem by passing the cookie value properly. Fixes: 7053aee26a3548ebaba046ae2e52396ccf56ac6c Reported-by: Vegard Nossum <> Signed-off-by: Jan Kara <>
