linux <=2.4.18 x86 traps.c problem

I've read a litte about a x86 specific bug discoverd by Stephan Springl
related to the iBCS code in arch/i386/kernel/traps.c
which allows a user to exploit the iBCS interface and kill processes not
belonging to them.  The openwall site has a tiny blurb about it and I've
seen it mentioned on the gresecurity mailing list, but I can't seem to
find any other information about it.  Does anyone else know more about
the details of this?

thanks,
