Thread-topic: patch against general kernel NULL pointer vulnurability
Hi there,

Due to http://lwn.net/Articles/347006/
or http://lists.grok.org.uk/pipermail/full-disclosure/2009-August/070197.html

virtually all x86 and x86_64 kernels are vulnerable.

I patched and build a 2.6.29-xen-r4 kernel which has been posted on this list
a few weeks ago. I'm using this kernel after a lot of testing productive.

D/L here: http://www.schwarz-mode.de/files/xen-newer-stuff/

Original patch: 

I'll build a from xensource repo also, but as I'm currently running
most machines with 2.6.29-xen-r4 this is not on my prio list.


Mit freundlichen Gruessen
