The bug report from bugtraq can be found at
http://www.geek-girl.com/bugtraq/1999_2/0604.html, no discussion about the
subject at linux-kernel AFAIK.
The report states that the whole 2.2 series would be affected, and I
believe that some machines running 2.2.5 in our local system have been
crashed using this exploit.
2.2.10 pre-patches have been around for a while.
