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.

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