    The following security bugs were fixed:
    - CVE-2016-9806: Race condition in the netlink_dump function in
    net/netlink/af_netlink.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to
    cause a denial of service (double free) or possibly have unspecified

    earlier than anticipated (bsc#1017589).
