I've just released Linux

The main goal was to address a regression brought by The
CAP_KILL fix caused modprobe to leave zombies on auto-loading (easily
seen with CONFIG_IPV6=m).

While working on this, I also merged some fixes which did not get into either because it was too late or because I missed them. The
only really relevant one is the fix for the SCTP overflow (CVE-2009-0065)
which has been demonstrated to be remotely exploitable when an SCTP
application was running.

Users of with modules autoloading enabled are really encouraged
to upgrade.

The patch and changelog will appear soon at the following locations:
