SubjectSecurity bug in 2.1.103: old style stat(2)
Hello guys,

IN fs/stat.c cp_old_stat() issues warning about old style stat() usage
continuously; this can be used by a malicious person to fill up system
logs.

Just thought would let you know, since /proc/pci and /dev/cua? behave in a
different manner (only one warning until next reboot).

Regards,
Tigran.
