Race condition ... when run on SMP systems that have more than 4GB of
memory, could allow local users to read unauthorized memory from
"foreign memory pages." Apparantly it also allows remote attackers to
obtain sensitive information, caused by a vulnerability in the
smb_recv_trans2 function, could also send a specially-crafted TRANS2
SMB packet to cause a kernel memory leak.

2.6.8 needs both these patches:
The second patch has been applied to Debian's kernel-source-2.6.8, but
