CVE-2010-1436

Priority
Description
gfs2 in the Linux kernel 2.6.18, and possibly other versions, does not
properly handle when the gfs2_quota struct occupies two separate pages,
which allows local users to cause a denial of service (kernel panic) via
certain manipulations that cause an out-of-bounds write, as demonstrated by
writing from an ext3 file system to a gfs2 file system.

Notes
smbThe upstream patch did not apply to anything and needed some backport.
I think I got the functionality right but review is welcome.
Dapper only has gfs(1) support and should therefor not be affected.
Package
Upstream:released (2.6.35~rc1)
