|| ||2.4.23-uv3 patch set released|
|| ||Mon, 29 Dec 2003 00:58:50 -0700 (MST)|
The Update Version patchset is a set of patches which include only fatal
compile/runtime bug fixes and security updates for the current kernel
version. This patch set can be used in production environments for those
who wish to run 2.4.23, but do not use vendor kernels and at the same time
require patches which add to the stability of the current release kernel
version. This is a patch set only, it does not include kernel source.
Current version is 2.4.23-uv3 which contains many patches pulled from the
2.4-bk mailing list and adds the last 5 patches in the list below.

This patch set only contains and will only contain security updates and

linux-2.4.23-rtc-compile.patch: Patch to allow RTC to compile properly on
some systems, see http://lkml.org/lkml/2003/12/1/150
duplicate-pid-fix-2.4.23.patch: Without this, duplicate pids can be
allocated, which will make one of them unkillable (signals are
deliverd to only one of them), and this can be exploitable (I don't
know for sure, but maybe, like brk()).
irda-log-buster-2.4.23.patch: I just ran 2.4.23, and after a few min the
disk reached 100% capacity. A quick check lead to to oversized
kernel log, and to the following changeset.
iseries-saverestore-flags-2.4.23.patch: [PPC64] Fix save_flags/restore_flags
mct_u232-baudratefix-2.4.23.patch: Fix a problem in the 'mct_u232' driver
whereby output data gets held up in the USB/RS-232 adapter for RS-232
devices which don't assert the 'CTS' signal.
odirect-offset-2.4.23.patch: here's an obvious mistake i made in the NFS
O_DIRECT implementation. A missing type cast causes the offset of direct
read and write requests to wrap at 4GB.

ppc64-smp_call_function_late_ipi-2.4.23.patch: [PPC64] Fix smp_call_function
