well, you really should check them out, but here's a choice quote from Paul Mackerras posted
to the security list a while ago:
I'd appreciate advice about the best way forward here, and to what
degree we should be candid about the reason for the patch in the

how 'candid' it became you can check in that thread and the posted links (hint: no mention of
the more serious security impact).
