When running kernel.org kernels you are on your own :(

A few days ago a local root exploit for the Linux Kernel has been posted and is available from all over the Internet now.

As usual in recent years the kernel.org people just fixed it silently without mentioning in the commit log that this is a mayor security fix.

People like me which are still running kernel.org kernels and which are actually the people reporting bugs in recent kernels are actually drawing the shortest straw here now :(

IMO it is a shame that there is still no 2.6.35.5 Kernel available which fixes this flaw.

So what I will need to do now is trying to repair this by merging the fix from git.kernel.org to 2.6.35.4…
