SLE 11 SERVER Unsupported Extras
______________________________________________________________________________

An update that solves three vulnerabilities and has 30
fixes is now available.

Description:

The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 Service Pack 1 kernel was
updated to 2.6.32.46 and fixes various bugs and security
issues.

Following security issues were fixed: CVE-2011-3191: A
signedness issue in CIFS could possibly have lead to to
memory corruption, if a malicious server could send crafted
replies to the host.

CVE-2011-3353: In the fuse filesystem,
FUSE_NOTIFY_INVAL_ENTRY did not check the length of the
write so the message processing could overrun and result in
a BUG_ON() in fuse_copy_fill(). This flaw could be used by
local users able to mount FUSE filesystems to crash the
system.

CVE-2011-2928: The befs_follow_link function in
fs/befs/linuxvfs.c in the Linux kernel did not validate the
length attribute of long symlinks, which allowed local
users to cause a denial of service (incorrect pointer
dereference and OOPS) by accessing a long symlink on a
malformed Be filesystem.


Also the following non security bugs were fixed:
- Added a missing reset for ioc_reset_in_progress in
SoftReset in the mtpsas driver (bnc#711969).

- Add support for the Digi/IBM PCIe 2-port Adapter
(bnc#708675).

C-states exist.

- KDB: turn off kdb usb support by default (bnc#694670
bnc#603804).

- xfs: Added event tracing support.
- xfs: fix xfs_fsblock_t tracing.

- igb: extend maximum frame size to receive VLAN tagged
frames (bnc#688859).

- cfq: Do not allow queue merges for queues that have no
process references (bnc#712929).
- cfq: break apart merged cfqqs if they stop cooperating
(bnc#712929).
- cfq: calculate the seek_mean per cfq_queue not per
cfq_io_context (bnc#712929).
- cfq: change the meaning of the cfqq_coop flag
(bnc#712929).
- cfq-iosched: get rid of the coop_preempt flag
(bnc#712929).
- cfq: merge cooperating cfq_queues (bnc#712929).

- Fix FDDI and TR config checks in ipv4 arp and LLC
(bnc#715235).

- writeback: do uninterruptible sleep in
balance_dirty_pages() (bnc#699354 bnc#699357).
- xfs: fix memory reclaim recursion deadlock on locked
inode buffer (bnc#699355 bnc#699354).
- xfs: use GFP_NOFS for page cache allocation (bnc#699355

pointer dereference (bnc#709412).
