Synopsis: ELBA-2017-3627 can now be patched using Ksplice
Users with Oracle Linux Premier Support can now use Ksplice to patch

INSTALLING THE UPDATES
We recommend that all users of Ksplice Uptrack running UEKR4 4.1.12 on
OL6 and OL7 install these updates.
On systems that have "autoinstall = yes" in /etc/uptrack/uptrack.conf,

# /usr/sbin/uptrack-upgrade -y

A logic error when setting interrupt affinity in Intel I40e Ethernet
driver could lead to a host kernel crash when rebooting guest VM. An
attacker with capability to reboot guest VM could use this flaw to
cause a denial-of-service.
