  1. af13f43f01a3 Linux 4.4.176


  1. 49e1a9d1169a KVM: VMX: Fix x2apic check in vmx_msr_bitmap_mode()
  2. 94801fd5ab23 ax25: fix possible use-after-free
  3. c532eb1d4527 mISDN: fix a race in dev_expire_timer()


  1. 82379cf03bee net/x25: do not hold the cpu too long in x25_new_lci()
  2. c78c9f52afe5 mfd: as3722: Mark PM functions as __maybe_unused

ACK:pavel – strictly speaking, this just fixes the warning, not a serious bug. But it should do no harm.

  1. e7dff89d7713 mfd: as3722: Handle interrupts on suspend

pavel – while this fixes a bug, it also changes wakeup behaviour of the device.

  1. bc4db52485cc kvm: fix kvm_ioctl_create_device() reference counting (CVE-2019-6974)

ACK: pavel

  1. f5aebe74113f x86: livepatch: Treat R_X86_64_PLT32 as R_X86_64_PC32

pavel – too many signoffs, typo “effacted” in the changelog, typo “becauce”

  1. 01fb36063d97 net: ipv4: use a dedicated counter for icmp_v4 redirect packets

ACK: pavel – changes ICMP behaviour from 2.6 without explaining why it is problematic.

  1. 3fa6a285279f net: stmmac: Fix a race in EEE enable callback

ACK: pavel

  1. ffed570a85ad vxlan: test dev→flags & IFF_UP before calling netif_rx()

ACK: pavel – erm. “Should fix just one thing”.

  1. a466589807a1 tcp: clear icsk_backoff in tcp_write_queue_purge()

ACK: pavel

  1. 2e7b872833c7 net: Do not allocate page fragments that are not skb aligned

pavel – theoretical bug, performance-only AFAICT

  1. 122e4a307793 tcp: tcp_v4_err() should be more careful

pavel – “make code more resilient for possible future bugs”

  1. 817d4a429566 net: Add header for usage of fls64()

ACK: pavel – while changelog does not explain what the bug is, this should not break anything

  1. 7fecacc0d5ff sky2: Increase D3 delay again

ACK: pavel

  1. 1815d11b544a net: Fix for_each_netdev_feature on Big endian

pavel – if I understand it correctly, this should be merged with 817d4a429566, otherwise it breaks compilation.

  1. 27763b01a4ff hwmon: (lm80) Fix missing unlock on error in set_fan_div()

ACK: pavel

  1. 9d6ca4d88e27 vsock: cope with memory allocation failure at socket creation time

ACK: pavel

  1. 9467d98f6d48 net: fix IPv6 prefix route residue

ACK: pavel
