Subject: systemtap DoS issue (CVE-2010-0411)

Just a heads up that an issue in SystemTap was found where using the
__get_argv() function in tapset could result in a crash of the SystemTap
script that calls it (and syscall.execve) or, if it's running as root,
could lead to a hang/crash of the system running the script.

This flaw has been assigned CVE-2010-0411.  More details can be found
