[PATCH] CVE-2005-2709 sysctl unregistration oops

You could open the /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/<if>/<whatever> file, then
wait for interface to go away, try to grab as much memory as possible in
hope to hit the (kfreed) ctl_table. Then fill it with pointers to your
function. Then do read from file you've opened and if you are lucky,
you'll get it called as ->proc_handler() in kernel mode.

So this is at least an Oops and possibly more. It does depend on an
interface going away though, so less of a security risk than it would
otherwise be.

[PATCH] br: fix race on bridge del if

This fixes the RCU race on bridge delete interface. Basically,
the network device has to be detached from the bridge in the first
step (pre-RCU), rather than later. At that point, no more bridge traffic
will come in, and the other code will not think that network device
is part of a bridge.

This should also fix the XEN test problems. If there is another
2.6.13-stable, add it as well.

[PATCH] Fix drm 'debug' sysfs permissions

Please consider for next 2.6.13, it is a minor security issue allowing
users to turn on drm debugging when they shouldn't...

This fell through the cracks. Until Josh pointed me at

[PATCH] Avoid 'names_cache' memory leak with CONFIG_AUDITSYSCALL

Avoid 'names_cache' memory leak with CONFIG_AUDITSYSCALL

The nameidata "last.name" is always allocated with "__getname()", and
should always be free'd with "__putname()".

Using "putname()" without the underscores will leak memory, because the
allocation will have been hidden from the AUDITSYSCALL code.

Arguably the real bug is that the AUDITSYSCALL code is really broken,
but in the meantime this fixes the problem people see.

[PATCH] BIC coding bug in Linux 2.6.13

Please consider this change for 2.6.13-stable Since BIC is
the default congestion control algorithm, this fix is quite
important.

Missing parenthesis in causes BIC to be slow in increasing congestion
window.
