* CVE-2016-2117: Information leak in Atheros ATL2 transmission.
The Atheros ATL2 driver advertised features that weren't supported by
the hardware and this could result in a buffer overflow, leaking the
contents of kernel memory into transmitted packets.
* Remote kernel panic in NFSv4 clients.
A failure to discard unsolicited filesystem location requests in the NFSv4
client side could lead to a kernel crash. An attacker controlling a NFS
server could use this flaw to crash NFS clients.
Ksplice support is available at ksplice-support_ww at oracle.com.
