Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2006-801
2006-07-14
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product     : Fedora Core 4
Name        : kernel
Version     : 2.6.17
Release     : 1.2142_FC4
Summary     : The Linux kernel (the core of the Linux operating system)
Description :
The kernel package contains the Linux kernel (vmlinuz), the core of any
Linux operating system.  The kernel handles the basic functions
of the operating system:  memory allocation, process allocation, device
input and output, etc.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

Rebase to latest upstream 2.6.17.4 -stable release, which
fixes a security issue which could result in local
priveledge escalation.

More details at:
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.17.4

In addition, an optimisation was performed to use
significantly less memory for several heavily used kernel
data structures.

* Tue Jul 11 2006 Dave Jones <davej redhat com> [2.6.17-1.2142_FC4]
- 2.6.17.4
- Disable split pagetable lock.
* Wed Jul  5 2006 Dave Jones <davej redhat com>
- Get rid of stack backtrace on panic, which in most
  cases actually caused a loss of info instead of a gain.
