Description

Rebase kernel to 2.6.22.1: http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.22 http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.22.1

Includes the CFS scheduler from upstream kernel 2.6.23.

Fixes since initial 2.6.22 test kernel was released: Fix timer problems and failure to boot. Fix failure to boot on PS3. Fix failure to initialize Hpt37x ATA controllers. Hopefully fix atl1 ethernet controller DMA. Add RAID autostart (dropped during initial rebase.) Fix oops in xfrm4, reported on Fedora 7.

CVE-2007-3642: The decode_choice function in net/netfilter/bf_conntrack_h323_asn1.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.22 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via an encoded, out-of-range index value for a choice field, which triggers a NULL pointer dereference.

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.
