Linus thinks this patch fixed it upstream (not verified)
Comment 6 Thomas Graf 2007-09-05 11:21:47 EDT
Note, no RHEL tree is affected to this. This bug has been introduced with the
patch [IPV6]: Per-interface statistics support. which was accepted in 2.6.20
therefore the vulnerable code was never included in any of our releases.
