The patch applies to the kernels 3.10.0-1062.12.1.vz7.131.10 (Virtuozzo Hybrid Server 7.0.13), 3.10.0-1127.8.2.vz7.151.14 (Virtuozzo Hybrid Server 7.0.14), 3.10.0-1127.8.2.vz7.158.8 (Virtuozzo Hybrid Server 7.0.14), 3.10.0-1127.18.2.vz7.163.46 (Virtuozzo Hybrid Server 7.5), 3.10.0-1160.21.1.vz7.174.13 (Virtuozzo Hybrid Server 7.5 Update 1).

2. Bug Fixes

  • [3.10.0-1062.12.1.vz7.131.10 to 3.10.0-1160.21.1.vz7.174.13] Kernel crash due to lack of enough skb headroom. It was found that the kernel could crash (skb_under_panic) when TEE target mirrors traffic to another interface. In this case skb may not have enough headroom to be processed correctly. It had been fixed for IPv4 but IPv6 continued to have the bug. (PSBM-130907)
