There is a project underway to track fixes for CVE issues in the kernel,
and to corrispond them with the patch that resolves them, as well as
when (if at all) they enter the various stable kernel releases.

That should make tracking this type of thing easier over time, and is
more comprehensive than the Ubuntu list.

But that's getting off-topic here a bit, sorry...
