8 is the actual commit, with a fair bit of detail about it. You could pull
9 the 1-line patch from there and apply it to your kernel. There's also
10 the workaround mentioned in the SANS message if you don't feel
11 comfortable with patching, as long as you don't need to use core dumps
12 as non-root.
14 For gentoo-sources, the most reliable way to figure out what's going on
15 is the ChangeLog.
17 Thanks,
