Description

This update of the openSUSE 11.2 kernel contains a lot of bug and security fixes.

Following security issues were fixed: CVE-2010-0622: The wake_futex_pi function in kernel/futex.c in the Linux kernel does not properly handle certain unlock operations for a Priority Inheritance (PI) futex, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS) and possibly have unspecified other impact via vectors involving modification of the futex value from user space.

CVE-2010-0623: The futex_lock_pi function in kernel/futex.c in the Linux kernel does not properly manage a certain reference count, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS) via vectors involving an unmount of an ext3 filesystem.

CVE-2010-0415: The do_pages_move function in mm/migrate.c in the Linux kernel does not validate node values, which allows local users to read arbitrary kernel memory locations, cause a denial of service (OOPS), and possibly have unspecified other impact by specifying a node that is not part of the kernel's node set.

CVE-2010-0410: drivers/connector/connector.c in the Linux kernel allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory consumption and system crash) by sending the kernel many NETLINK_CONNECTOR messages.

CVE-2009-4031: The do_insn_fetch function in arch/x86/kvm/emulate.c in the x86 emulator in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel tries to interpret instructions that contain too many bytes to be valid, which allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (increased scheduling latency) on the host OS via unspecified manipulations related to SMP support.

This update also contains a large rollup of fixes for the rt2860 and rt3090 wireless drivers from the mainline kernel.
