Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2005-08-10 08:25:32 EDT
jbaron said to rhkernel-list "below, is a patch i've been tracking from Ingo,
but i'm not sure its been posted here. Not sure if there is a bugzilla, but it
is a real security issue. Afaict, the check ensures that kernel access to
userspace read and write paths is within its proper bounds for the 4/4 split. i
expect Ingo 
to ack this ;)"
