CVE request: kernel: arbitrary kernel read in xtensa
From: Dan Rosenberg <dan.j.rosenberg () gmail com>

Not sure if any distributions support xtensa, but regardless:

Due to a failure to check user pointers passed to a ptrace_setxregs
request, it is possible for a local unprivileged user to read
arbitrary kernel memory [1].
