Backport of the integer overflow in the brk system call
just curious: any particular reason why we didn't see a backport any sooner of
the integer overflow in the brk system call (see recent announcement by
like we did with the ptrace issue some time back?
Wasn't it (the brk vuln) considered to be threatening enough to justify a
quick fix, or was it because the fix by Andrew Morton didn't say (kerne
changelog) enough about the potential seriousness of the vuln, or?
