Subject: CVE-Request -- Linux kernel - panic on nftables rule flush


I'd like to request a CVE for a denial of service attack found here here

A remote attacker with the NET_CAP_ADMIN capability could use this to panic (denial of service) a system if they were able to flush a chain with a jump target.
