Note from the SUSE Security Team

This issue was fixed in the Linux Kernel 4.4.21 stable release, and so was fixed before SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP2 shipment. This issue was fixed in Linux Kernel 3.12.53 for SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 and 12 SP1. The problem does not affect Linux Kernel 3.0 and older, so SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 and older products are not affected.
