CVE-2016-3044 (retired)

Priority
Description
The Linux kernel component in IBM PowerKVM 2.1 before 2.1.1.3-65.10 and 3.1
before 3.1.0.2 allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS
infinite loop and hang) via unspecified vectors.
Notes
 sarnold> I haven't determined if this CVE is specific to IBM's
  PowerKVM Linux distribution or if this is an issue in the Linux
  kernel.
 sbeattie> it sounds possibly like this might be a PowerKVM "rebrand"
  of CVE-2016-5412. One of the two commits to address that was
  93d17397e4e2182fdaad503e2f9da46202c0f1c3, which fixed a similar
  failure condition: a guest could trigger a host CPU to spin forever
  with interrupts disabled. Furthermore, the IBM xforce vulnerability
  page notes that the issue was reported on July 22, 2016, which also
  happens to be the exact date of the aforementioned git commit.
 sbeattie> looks like this is actually
