      [PATCH] Fix sysctl unregistration oops (CVE-2005-2709) · 330d57fb

      You could open the /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/<if>/<whatever> file, then
      wait for interface to go away, try to grab as much memory as possible in
      hope to hit the (kfreed) ctl_table.  Then fill it with pointers to your
      function.  Then do read from file you've opened and if you are lucky,
      you'll get it called as ->proc_handler() in kernel mode.
      
      So this is at least an Oops and possibly more.  It does depend on an
      interface going away though, so less of a security risk than it would
      otherwise be.

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      
      Let it rip!
