Please use CVE-2012-6138 for these issues.

I think this is wrong.  I would understand if those issues were all
in the same subsystem at least (or if you assigned per-subsystem
CVE IDs for these), but this is not the case.  Many distros will
fix some, but not the others, or not all at the same time.  There's
room for a little bit of bundling here, but not that much.

This raises a valid point, Steve what do we consider to be "same
codebase"? Linux Kernel? Various subsystems? In general I have applied
it at the project level typically (e.g. samba contains a server, a
client and utilities but I consider it to be one code base).
