Subject: Kernel oops on 32 bits arch

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA256

Dear all,

This bug report has been brought to my attention [1] where under high
load a server can be oopsed, be it grsec or vanilla kernel.

Apparently, it's due to a partial fix that would have only be deployed
to 64 bits Linux [2].

Has anyone more info on this? Like why there was only a 64 bits fix?
Was a CVE assigned for this?

Cheers,
