Linux 188.8.131.52 Released
We (the -stable team) are announcing the release of the 184.108.40.206 kernel. There's a long list of fixes, not the least of which is the data corruption fix from Linus and some security fixes:
d4ea7f9f: Bluetooth: Add packet size checks for CAPI messages (CVE-2006-6106)
eaca4fd8: handle ext3 directory corruption better (CVE-2006-6053)
fe89cf78: corrupted cramfs filesystems cause kernel oops (CVE-2006-5823)
8d312ae1: ext2: skip pages past number of blocks in ext2_find_entry (CVE-2006-6054)
54e25b04: VM: Fix nasty and subtle race in shared mmap'ed page writeback
e26353af: Fix incorrect user space access locking in mincore() (CVE-2006-4814)
The diffstat and short summary of the fixes are below.
I'll also be replying to this message with a copy of the patch between 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168, as it is small enough to do so.
