CVE-2005-3857 lease DoS
        The time_out_leases function in locks.c for Linux kernel
        before 2.6.15 allows local users to cause a denial of service
        (kernel log message consumption) by causing a large number of
        broken leases, which is recorded to the log using the printk

fix (remove printk):


Listing as moderate, but may be updated to important based on kernel team
