I have a few questions about user applications.

When a new user process is started will its user space be cleared by the
kernel or is there a potential leak from an older user process ?
What about the registers values, are they cleared for each new user
application or will it simply contain the current value it got when the
user application is started ?
How can you flush the data and instruction cashes from a user
application ?
