[PATCH 4.4 021/114] net: drop write-only stack variable




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

------------------

[ Upstream commit 3575dbf2cbbc8e598f17ec441aed526dbea0e1bd ]

Remove a write-only stack variable from unix_attach_fds(). This is a
left-over from the security fix in:

    commit 712f4aad406bb1ed67f3f98d04c044191f0ff593
    Author: willy tarreau <w@xxxxxx>
