Description Andrej Nemec 2016-11-07 14:06:16 UTC
A malicious user who can run an arbitrary image with a non-privileged user
in a Container-as-a-service cloud environment could use the exploit to
deadlock the container nodes to deny the service for other users.

This is confirmed to affect the latest mainline kernel (4.9-rc3) using this
kernel config, http://people.redhat.com/qcai/tmp/config-god-4.9rc2
and as old as v3.17. RHEL 7.3 kernel is not affected.
