  Security fixes:

  * memory leaks were found on some error paths in the icmp_send()
  function in the Linux kernel. This could, potentially, cause the network
  connectivity to cease. (CVE-2009-0778, Important)

  * Chris Evans reported a deficiency in the clone() system call when called
  with the CLONE_PARENT flag. This flaw permits the caller (the parent
  process) to indicate an arbitrary signal it wants to receive when its child
  process exits. This could lead to a denial of service of the parent
  process. (CVE-2009-0028, Moderate)

  * an off-by-one underflow flaw was found in the eCryptfs subsystem. This
  could potentially cause a local denial of service when the readlink()
  function returned an error. (CVE-2009-0269, Moderate)

  * a deficiency was found in the Remote BIOS Update (RBU) driver for Dell
  systems. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to cause a denial of
  service by reading zero bytes from the image_type or packet_size files in
  '/sys/devices/platform/dell_rbu/'. (CVE-2009-0322, Moderate)

  * an inverted logic flaw was found in the SysKonnect FDDI PCI adapter
  driver, allowing driver statistics to be reset only when the CAP_NET_ADMIN
  capability was absent (local, unprivileged users could reset driver
  statistics). (CVE-2009-0675, Moderate)

  * the sock_getsockopt() function in the Linux kernel did not properly
  initialize a data structure that can be directly returned to user-space
  when the getsockopt() function is called with SO_BSDCOMPAT optname set.
  This flaw could possibly lead to memory disclosure.
  (CVE-2009-0676, Moderate)

  * the ext2 and ext3 file system code failed to properly handle corrupted
  data structures, leading to a possible local denial of service when read
  or write operations were performed on a specially-crafted file system.
  (CVE-2008-3528, Low)

  * a deficiency was found in the libATA implementation. This could,
  potentially, lead to a local denial of service. Note: by default, the
  '/dev/sg*' devices are accessible only to the root user.
  (CVE-2008-5700, Low)

  Bug fixes:

  * a bug in aic94xx may have caused kernel panics during boot on some
  systems with certain SATA disks. (BZ#485909)

  * a word endianness problem in the qla2xx driver on PowerPC-based machines
  may have corrupted flash-based devices. (BZ#485908)

  * a memory leak in pipe() may have caused a system deadlock. The workaround
  in Section 1.5, Known Issues, of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 Release
