The raw_cmd_copyout function in drivers/block/floppy.c in the Linux
kernel through 3.14.3 does not properly restrict access to certain
pointers during processing of an FDRAWCMD ioctl call, which allows
local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel heap memory by
leveraging write access to a /dev/fd device.
