Description Joy Latten 2007-02-12 19:36:58 EST
Description of problem:

xfrm_audit_log()is not called correctly and BUG() needs to be added to ensure
some arguments are valid.

When called in xfrm_get_policy() causes a kernel crash. 

A patch has been posted on netdev mailing list and is currently undergoing a
review there.

This problem exists in lspp kernel and upstream kernel.

Notes to self:


Going to need to revert patch # 21202 
Name: linux-2.6-xfrm-audit-correct-xfrm-auditing-panic.patch

To put this in.

LSPP.65 kernel patch for this issue.

LSPP.65 kernel reveted the last fix for this problem and this patch should
implement the upstream fix.  Since the original problem is a panic we probably
need to be sure to solicit the upstream testers who found the problem to
specifically test with this patch.
Comment 3 Eric Paris 2007-03-06 16:32:03 EST
I need to post this for a RHEL5 update.  It is upstream and has been verified as
still working in the LSPP kernels.
Comment 4 Joy Latten 2007-03-16 17:41:54 EDT
Tested xfrm_get_policy in LSPP kernel using a test program and appears ok.
Comment 6 RHEL Product and Program Management 2007-03-28 14:42:11 EDT
