Hi Linus, David, Edward, Networking maintainers, all,

This is a heads up that my understanding is that the last patch introduces
a buffer overrun for which a patch has been posted. Ordinarily I would
think that the fix should go through net. But the above patches aren't in
net yet.

Given a) we're now in a holiday season and b) the severity of this
problem is unclear (to me), perhaps it is best to wait a bit then
post the fix to net?


N.B. The hash in the fixes tag for the fix patch is now incorrect.

For reference the fix, from the link above, is below.
I've fixed the hash for the fixes tag and added the posted review tag.
And added my own SoB, because the patch is in this email.

From: Edward Adam Davis <eadavis@xxxxxx>

bin will be forcibly converted to "struct dns_server_list_v1_header *", so it 
is necessary to compare datalen with sizeof(*v1).
