Announcement ID: SUSE-RU-2020:0793-1
Rating: moderate
References: #1139459 #1161262 #1162108 #1164717 #1165579
Affected Products:
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for Open Buildservice Development Tools 15-SP1
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for Basesystem 15-SP1

An update that solves one vulnerability and has four fixes is now available.

Description:

This update for systemd fixes the following issues:

  • manager: fix job mode when signalled to shutdown etc (bsc#1161262)
  • remove fallback for user/exit.target
  • dbus method Manager.Exit() does not start exit.target
  • do not install rescue.target for alt-↑
  • %j/%J unit specifiers


Added support for I/O scheduler selection with blk-mq (bsc#1165579, bsc#1164717).
Added the udev 60-ssd-scheduler.rules:
  • This rules file which select the default IO scheduler for SSDs is being moved out from the git repo since this is not related to systemd or udev at all and is maintained by the kernel team.

  • core: coldplug possible nop_job (bsc#1139459)
  • Revert "udev: use 'deadline' IO scheduler for SSD disks"
  • Fix typo in function name
  • polkit: when authorizing via PK let's re-resolve callback/userdata instead of caching it (bsc#1162108 CVE-2020-1712)
  • sd-bus: introduce API for re-enqueuing incoming messages
  • polkit: on async pk requests, re-validate action/details
