users with permission to manipulate /dev/kvm can cause a denial
of service (hang) by providing an invalid cr3 value to the
KVM_SET_SREGS call.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed
in version 72+dfsg-5~lenny2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your kvm packages, and rebuild any kernel";
