--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : kernel
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     : 2.6.22.4
Release     : 65.fc7
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.

http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.22.4

- Fix failure to find serial ports on some machines.
- Detect broken timers on some AMD dual-core machines: fixes
hangs and failure to boot.
- Don't crash when a userspace driver requests too much memory.
- Update the CFS scheduler to more closely match upstream.
- Wireless driver update.

CVE-2007-3848:
Linux kernel 2.4.35 and other versions allows local users to
send arbitrary signals to a child process that is running at
higher privileges by causing a setuid-root parent process to
die, which delivers an attacker-controlled parent process
death signal (PR_SET_PDEATHSIG).
