______________________________________________________________________________

An update that solves one vulnerability and has 9 fixes is
now available.

Description:



The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP2 LTSS kernel was updated to receive
various security and bugfixes.

The following security bug was fixed:

- CVE-2018-3639: Information leaks using "Memory Disambiguation"
feature
in modern CPUs were mitigated, aka "Spectre Variant 4"
(bnc#1087082).

A new boot commandline option was introduced,
"spec_store_bypass_disable", which can have following values:

- auto: Kernel detects whether your CPU model contains an implementation
of Speculative Store Bypass and picks the most appropriate mitigation.
- on: disable Speculative Store Bypass
- off: enable Speculative Store Bypass
- prctl: Control Speculative Store Bypass per thread via prctl.
Speculative Store Bypass is enabled for a process by default. The
state of the control is inherited on fork.
- seccomp: Same as "prctl" above, but all seccomp threads will
disable
SSB unless they explicitly opt out.

The default is "seccomp", meaning programs need explicit opt-in
into the
mitigation.

Status can be queried via the
/sys/devices/system/cpu/vulnerabilities/spec_store_bypass file, containing:

- "Vulnerable"
- "Mitigation: Speculative Store Bypass disabled"
- "Mitigation: Speculative Store Bypass disabled via prctl"
- "Mitigation: Speculative Store Bypass disabled via prctl and
seccomp"

The following related and non-security bugs were fixed:

- cpuid: Fix cpuid.edx.7.0 propagation to guest
- ext4: Fix hole length detection in ext4_ind_map_blocks() (bsc#1090953).
- ibmvnic: Clean actual number of RX or TX pools (bsc#1092289).
