Kernel 2.4 bugs or security issues?

In SuSE Security Announcement: kernel (SuSE-SA:2003:034) there is a list of fixes for the 2.4 kernel. Unfortunately, the descriptions of the different problems are very short and no CVE or Cert references are added :-/

I'm wondering whether the following two problems are security related, or actually just bugs:

-fix problem with ecc reporting garbage in /proc/ram
-fix console redirect bug

Does anyone have any idea of what is actually the problem and what the security impact would be?

Kind regards,
