This flaw could lead to a kernel heap overflow by processes with
access to the DRM driver:

Given that FreeBSD also has some sort of i915kms kernel driver now,
is it also vulnerable?

Based on our evaluation this also affects FreeBSD and thus we will fix
it similarly.

However, since users using DRM generally already have physical local
access to the system, we do not intend to release a security advisory
for this issue.

Cheers,
