If you're not going to merge the critical x86 fixes I sent,
I won't bother sending anything more.

Sorry, they didn't went in before 2.6.16.37-rc1, and except for 
releasing 2.6.16.37-rc1 unchanged as 2.6.16.37 I didn't work on 2.6.16 
during christmas and new year.

I've now applied all three patches.

There's already a CVE number for
"i386: save/restore eflags in context switch".

Are there also CVE numbers for the equivalent x86_64 patch and
"x86_64: fix ia32 syscall count"?

Thanks for your patches
Adrian

I asked on vendor-sec and got CVE-2006-5755 for the x86_64 equivalent of 
CVE-2006-5173, but none for the syscall count issue.

The latter is IMHO OK since "local user can spam syslog" is really 
borderline - there are simply too many DoS possibilities for local 
users.

Sorry, my Web access is broken for now so I can't check, but I believe
that CVE number is for a different, older problem.

So AFAIK there are no CVE numbers for anything I sent (but there
probably should be.)  Generic Linux kernel developers don't have
a CVE representative, so we depend on vendors to assign numbers
and sometimes they don't.
