( CVE-2012-0957 ) * Kernel stack content disclosure via binfmt_script load_script(). ( CVE-2012-4530 ) The following non-security issues were fixed: * BTRFS: o btrfs: reset path lock state to zero. o btrfs: fix off-by-one in lseek. o btrfs: fix btrfs_cont_expand() freeing IS_ERR em. o btrfs: update timestamps on truncate(). o btrfs: put csums on the right ordered extent. o btrfs: use existing align macros in btrfs_allocate() o btrfs: fix off-by-one error of the reserved size of btrfs_allocate() o btrfs: add fiemaps flag check o btrfs: fix permissions of empty files not affected by umask o btrfs: do not auto defrag a file when doing directIO o btrfs: fix wrong return value of btrfs_truncate_page() o btrfs: Notify udev when removing device o btrfs: fix permissions of empty files not affected by umask o btrfs: fix hash overflow handling o btrfs: do not delete a subvolume which is in a R/O subvolume o btrfs: remove call to btrfs_wait_ordered_extents to avoid potential deadlock. o btrfs: update the checks for mixed block groups with big metadata blocks o btrfs: Fix use-after-free in __btrfs_end_transaction o btrfs: use commit root when loading free space cache. o btrfs: avoid setting ->d_op twice (FATE#306586 bnc#731387). o btrfs: fix race in reada (FATE#306586). o btrfs: do not add both copies of DUP to reada extent tree o btrfs: do not mount when we have a sectorsize unequal to PAGE_SIZE o btrfs: add missing unlocks to transaction abort paths o btrfs: avoid sleeping in verify_parent_transid while atomic o btrfs: disallow unequal data/metadata blocksize for mixed block groups o btrfs: enhance superblock sanity checks (bnc#749651). o btrfs: sanitizing ->fs_info, parts 1-5. o btrfs: make open_ctree() return int. o btrfs: kill pointless reassignment of ->s_fs_info in btrfs_fill_super(). o btrfs: merge free_fs_info() calls on fill_super failures. o btrfs: make free_fs_info() call ->kill_sb() unconditional. o btrfs: consolidate failure exits in btrfs_mount() a bit. o btrfs: let ->s_fs_info point to fs_info, not root... o btrfs: take allocation of ->tree_root into open_ctree(). *
