Synopsis: ELBA-2015-3008 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-2015-3008.


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


* Incorrect lock taken when using semaphore timed operations.

When using semaphore timed operations a write lock is required to allow
semtimedop to safely modify internal state. However, only a read lock was
taken - causing invalid memory access when the syscall was used.


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