CVE-2009-1961 (retired)

The inode double locking code in fs/ocfs2/file.c in the Linux kernel 2.6.30
before 2.6.30-rc3, 2.6.27 before, 2.6.29 before, and
possibly other versions down to 2.6.19 allows local users to cause a denial
of service (prevention of file creation and removal) via a series of splice
system calls that trigger a deadlock between the generic_file_splice_write,
splice_from_pipe, and ocfs2_file_splice_write functions.
Upstream:released (2.6.30~rc1)
