Description:
    Previous versions of the kernel are subject to multiple vulnerabilities.
    The most serious allows a local non-privileged user to gain unrestricted
    root access.
    
    This update adds support for significant additional hardware.
    
    This update requires a system reboot to implement the fixes.
