Synopsis: ELBA-2015-3007 can now be patched using Ksplice

Users with Oracle Linux Premier Support can now use Ksplice to patch
against the latest Oracle kernel update, ELBA-2015-3007.


We recommend that all users of Ksplice Uptrack on EL 5 install these

On systems that have "autoinstall = yes" in /etc/uptrack/uptrack.conf,
these updates will be installed automatically and you do not need to
take any action.

Alternatively, you can install these updates by running:

# /usr/sbin/uptrack-upgrade -y


* Kernel crash in OCFS2 during master query.

A race condition in the OCFS2 distributed lock manager could result in
an inconsistent state where different nodes believed they were the
master.  This could trigger an assertion and crash the system.

* Memory corruption in FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace) interrupt handling.

Incorrect locking could result in memory corruption when handling an
interrupt for a FUSE filesystem.  This could result in a kernel crash
when using certain FUSE filesystems.

* Kernel crash in Infiniband Sockets Direct Protocol packet reception.

Incorrect locking could result in dereferencing a NULL pointer during
packet reception and causing a kernel crash.


Ksplice support is available at ksplice-support_ww at oracle.com.
