OK .. supposedly, this patch fixes the issue:


I have made this patch apply to the xen kernel sources:


Let's verify that what I am applying is the only real meat to the first

I will build and test this locally to verify that we have the issue
before and not after applying that patch.

Then we can test it as a group.

SO .. hold off on testing kernel-3.18.25-17 and I will create a
kernel-3.18.25-18 if this fixes the CVE-2016-0728 issue.
