This update for drm provides the following fixes:

This security issue was fixed:

  • CVE-2017-10810: Memory leak in the virtio_gpu_object_create function in drivers/gpu/drm/virtio/virtgpu_object.c allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by triggering object-initialization failures (bnc#1047277)

These non-security issues were fixed:

  • Backport upstream 4.9.x stable fixes up to 4.9.81 (bsc#1041744).
  • Fixed crash at suspend/resume on old Intel chipsets (bsc#1047729, bsc#1050256)
  • Fixed large topology support for vmwgfx (bsc#1048155)
  • Workaround for BXT aperture vs GTT chip bug (bsc#1046821)
  • Limit the supplements for the default hardware support to only Intel Skylake / Kabylake and AMDGPU (bsc#1077885) 4.9.x i915 seems more buggy than expected for old chipsets.
  • Conditionally build aarch64 as well (bsc#1066175)
  • Build host1x module (taken from the kernel-source) as well for avoiding the unneeded dependency on kernel-default-extra on ARM64 (bsc#1066175)
  • Enable AMDGPU CIK and SI (bsc#1066175):
  • Add missing hisilicon hibmc driver (bsc#1066175):
  • Add si_support and cik_support options to radeon and amdgpu (bsc#1066175):
  • Update Module.supported and apply it properly; following SLE12-SP3 kernel status
  • Backport the upstream DP-MST fixes, addressing a hang at S3 resume (bsc#1055493):
