Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2007:0347 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Important: kernel security and bug fix update 2007-05-16 18:56:58 UTC

Description Marcel Holtmann 2007-05-04 07:47:54 UTC
From Jaco Kroon:

I've got a piece of code that seems to reliably cause the kernel to panic, looks
like a problem somewhere down the netlink core. I've been trying to use
NETLINK_FIB_LOOKUP but so far the closest I've come to success was a kernel crash.
