Description

Update to Linux 2.6.22.8 and 2.6.22.9: http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.22.8 http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.22.9

CVE-2007-4571 The snd_mem_proc_read function in sound/core/memalloc.c in the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) in the Linux kernel before 2.6.22.8 does not return the correct write size, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information (kernel memory contents) via a small count argument, as demonstrated by multiple reads of /proc/driver/snd-page-alloc.

Additional fixes: Revert to the old RTC driver (#265721, #284191) Disable NCQ for additional SATA drives. libata pata_sis: DMA fixes (#247768) libata sata_sil24: IRQ clearing race fixes net driver r8169: fix hanging (#252955, #292161) qdisc sfq: fix oops with 2 packet queue (#219895) ACPI: disable processor C-states suring suspend ACPI: silence noisy message

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
