Slackware patched the kernel for both -current and -stable as of 0100 UTC (6:00 PM CST), according to the ChangeLogs -current and -stable.
The -current fix involves upgrading to Kernel 22.214.171.124, whereas the -stable fix appears to be a backported patch to 126.96.36.199 (which shipped with Slackware 12.0 back in July).
