Due to a recently announced security issue with the current kernel, we
(the -stable team) are announcing the release of the kernel.
It contains:
- a fix for the posted problem
- a revert of a patch in the last release that caused issues
with partitions (the bk changelog shows this as a i2c issue,
but that is a mistake as you can see from the real patch.)
- addition of the SecurityBugs documentation
- another security related fix that is already in 2.6.12-rc4.

The diffstat and short summary of the fixes are below.

I'll also be replying to this message with a copy of the patch between and, as it is small enough to do so.
