The CVE ID is below. Please clarify whether you want this added to the
public CVE List immediately. You have provided
https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/724136/ as a public reference that
appears to disclose this as a vulnerability, at least if the attacker
can run a local application to make arbitrary system calls. The public
reference does not directly suggest a remote attack: that detail could
be omitted from the public CVE List.
