Description Mark J. Cox 2005-01-25 04:42:45 EST
A small information leak was found by Brad Spengler, but it isn't thought to be

Fixed in 2.6: 
Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2005-02-09 21:21:08 EST
this patch is bogus for rhel4 since we don't enable sysenter at all.
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-02-09 22:43:08 EST
we do if we run 32bit OS on a CPU with NX.
