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, the patch
and resulting discussion happened on
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).
