A CVE can be assigned because the patch above does block some XSS
attack vectors. Use CVE-2014-2856 for what is addressed by this patch.
There weren't any immediate followups here or in L4356 demonstrating
how to exploit the patched scheduler/client.c code in a specific test
environment. It is quite possible that other CVE assignments will be
made later.
