Description

AIO in the Linux kernel 2.6.11 on the PPC64 or IA64 architectures with CONFIG_HUGETLB_PAGE enabled allows local users to cause a denial of service (system panic) via a process that executes the io_queue_init function but exits without running io_queue_release, which causes exit_aio and is_hugepage_only_range to fail.
