CVE-2007-5501:
The tcp_sacktag_write_queue function in net/ipv4/tcp_input.c 
in Linux kernel 2.6.24-rc2 and earlier allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via crafted 
ACK responses that trigger a NULL pointer dereference.

CVE-2007-5500:
The wait_task_stopped function in the Linux kernel before
2.6.23.8 checks a TASK_TRACED bit instead of an exit_state
value, which allows local users to cause a denial of service
(machine crash) via unspecified vectors.

Plus:
Fix compat class device links in sysfs.
Fix boot speed when virtualized on Intel VT processors.
Fix ppc64 vDSO DWARF info for CR register (#350291)
