Comment 1 Adam Mariš 2017-12-19 11:03:31 UTC
Created kernel tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1527395]

Comment 3 Justin M. Forbes 2017-12-19 15:29:08 UTC
This was fixed in the kernel-4.14.7 update for Fedora.

Comment 7 Vladis Dronov 2018-02-26 18:24:04 UTC
Statement:

This issue affects the versions of the Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2. Future Linux kernel updates for the respective releases may address this issue.

This issue does not affect the versions of the Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 7, its real-time kernel, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 for ARM 64 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 for Power 9 LE, as a code with the flaw is not built and shipped with the products listed.
