Where do we clear "m"? 

   287  struct xt_match {
   288          struct list_head list;
   290          const char name[XT_EXTENSION_MAXNAMELEN];
   291          u_int8_t revision;

There is a 2 byte holes here between "revision" and "match()".  We
copy three bytes past the end of name, so we include revision and
the hole.

But maybe we memset it somewhere?  I'm not sure.

   293          /* Return true or false: return FALSE and set *hotdrop = 1 to
   294             force immediate packet drop. */
   295          /* Arguments changed since 2.6.9, as this must now handle
   296             non-linear skb, using skb_header_pointer and
   297             skb_ip_make_writable. */
   298          bool (*match)(const struct sk_buff *skb,
   299                        struct xt_action_param *);
