  • PSBM-136140

  • PSBM-136851

    Potential memory corruption in nfsd4_lock().

  • PSBM-136295

    fs/locks.c: Node crash BUG in locks_insert_block().

  • PSBM-136369

    fs: potential kernel crash in inode_permission() when processing paths containing '..'.

  • PSBM-134905

    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.

    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.
