Synopsis: ELBA-2016-3526 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-2016-3526.


We recommend that all users of Ksplice Uptrack on EL 6 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


* Infinite loop during connection teardown iSCSI library code.

Incorrect locking in the iSCSI library code could cause the kernel to
enter an infinite loop.

* Data corruption when transmitting packets via Virtual Ethernet device.

A logic error can cause checksums to be ignored by the Virtual Ethernet
device driver which can cause corrupted data to be delivered to containers.


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