CVE-2006-5173

Priority
Description
Linux kernel does not properly save or restore EFLAGS during a context
switch, or reset the flags when creating new threads, which allows local
users to cause a denial of service (process crash), as demonstrated using a
process that sets the Alignment Check flag (EFLAGS 0x40000), which triggers
a SIGBUS in other processes that have an unaligned access.
