Technically, this is not a security bug.

It definitely affects non-64bit systems too, contrary to 3Ware's claims. We had corruption on a 32bit system, which is what prompted us to start figuring it out.

And I agree, technically it isn't, but security is one of the few ways to get updates into the distribution that are NMU.
