Hi !

As there were a few security fixes pending and 2.4.34-pre1 has not
received enough validation, I've released with the most
important fixes. All those fixes are already in 2.4.34-pre1.

Particularly important ones are :
- CVE-2006-1528 : local DoS via direct I/O from the sg driver to mmapped I/O space
fix from Dann Frazier
- CVE-2006-4093 : possible local DoS on some PPC970.
fix from Olof Johansson

Hotfix patches for older versions should follow within a short time.


Summary of changes from v2.4.33 to v2.4.33.1

dann frazier:
drivers/scsi/sg.c : fix CVE-2006-1528
