Description James Morris 2007-04-25 19:02:11 EDT
For details, see upstream thread:
(also includes patch)

RHEL4 and previous are not vulnerable, no fix is needed for
them because they completely lack this feature and this code.

Although initially reported on stable@kernel.org, the patch
and resulting discussion happened on netdev@vger.kernel.org
so this bug is fully public knowledge.
Comment 1 James Morris 2007-04-25 19:04:01 EDT
Fedora kernels may be affected (any kernel since Jun 20th, 2005).
