Potential memory corruption in nfsd4_lock().
fs/locks.c: Node crash BUG in locks_insert_block().
fs: potential kernel crash in inode_permission() when processing paths containing '..'.
nfsd: memory corruption and kernel crash in nfsd4_lock.It was discovered that certain operations with locks on NFS could result in a memory corruption and kernel crash in nfsd4_lock(). Note that, although the patch prevents new issues of this kind, it cannot fix the corruptions that have already occurred. So, kernel crashes are still possible even within a few hours after the ReadyKernel update has been applied, but should disappear after the reboot of the affected nodes.
Virtual machines might fail to start on a host with AMD Milan CPU.It was discovered that virtual machines on the hosts with AMD Milan CPUs could try to set IA32_SPEC_CTRL MSR during their startup and would fail to start: qemu-kvm would be killed by SIGABRT.
Memory allocation failed unexpectedly in __add_to_page_cache_locked().Ext4 FS was unexpectedly remounted read-only in a container after the container reached the limits set in the memory cgroup. It happened because the relevant memory allocations failed in __add_to_page_cache_locked while __GFP_NOFAIL flag was dropped for certain reason.
