  operating system.

  This update fixes the following security issues:
  
  * Information leak flaws were found in the Linux kernel Traffic Control
  Unit implementation. A local attacker could use these flaws to cause the
  kernel to leak kernel memory to user-space, possibly leading to the
  disclosure of sensitive information. (CVE-2010-2942, Moderate)
  
  * A flaw was found in the tcf_act_police_dump() function in the Linux
  kernel network traffic policing implementation. A data structure in
  tcf_act_police_dump() was not initialized properly before being copied to
  user-space. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause an
  information leak. (CVE-2010-3477, Moderate)
  
  * A missing upper bound integer check was found in the sys_io_submit()
  function in the Linux kernel asynchronous I/O implementation. A local,
  unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause an information leak.
  (CVE-2010-3067, Low)
  
  Red Hat would like to thank Tavis Ormandy for reporting CVE-2010-3067.
  
  This update also fixes the following bugs:
  
  * When two systems using bonding devices in the adaptive load balancing
  (ALB) mode communicated with each other, an endless loop of ARP replies
  started between these two systems due to a faulty MAC address update. With
  this update, the MAC address update no longer creates unneeded ARP replies.
  (BZ#629239)
  
  * When running the Connectathon NFS Testsuite with certain clients and Red
  Hat Enterprise Linux 4.8 as the server, nfsvers4, lock, and test2 failed
  the Connectathon test. (BZ#625535)
  
  * For UDP/UNIX domain sockets, due to insufficient memory barriers in the
  network code, a process sleeping in select() may have missed notifications
  about new data. In rare cases, this bug may have caused a process to sleep
  forever. (BZ#640117)
  
  * In certain situations, a bug found in either the HTB or TBF network
  packet schedulers in the Linux kernel could have caused a kernel panic when
  using Broadcom network cards with the bnx2 driver. (BZ#624363)
  
  * Previously, allocating fallback cqr for DASD reserve/release IOCTLs
  failed because it used the memory pool of the respective device. This
  update preallocates sufficient memory for a single reserve/release request.
  (BZ#626828)
  
  * In some situations a bug prevented "force online" succeeding for a DASD
  device. (BZ#626827)
  
  * Using the "fsstress" utility may have cause ...
