2. Bug Fixes¶
[3.10.0-957.12.2.vz7.96.21 to 3.10.0-1062.12.1.vz7.131.10] memcg: kernel could crash when memory was uncharged from a cgroup while the cgroup was going offline. It was found that a race was possible between uncharging memory from a cgroup and making that cgroup offline. This could lead to premature destruction of the cgroup and could cause a kernel crash. (PSBM-103975)
[3.10.0-957.12.2.vz7.96.21 to 3.10.0-1062.12.1.vz7.131.10] netlink: performance issues due to direct memory reclaim in netlink_dump() and netlink_trim(). (PSBM-104086)
[3.10.0-957.12.2.vz7.96.21 to 3.10.0-1062.12.1.vz7.131.10] ext4: attempts to freeze the FS could hang in certain cases due to an unbalanced internal write counter. (PSBM-104342)
[3.10.0-862.20.2.vz7.73.29 to 3.10.0-1062.12.1.vz7.131.10] nf_conntrack: potential kernel crash in netlink_has_listeners(). (PSBM-104387)
