Linux 2.4.37.5

Hi all,

I've just released Linux 2.4.37.5.

I wanted to delay it a bit more to wait for other fixes to be ready
to be merged, but a very old vulnerability has recently been discovered,
and a local exploit is already circulating, though it does not work as-is
on 2.4, hehe ;-)


Thus I preferred to release 2.4.37.5 now so that users have the time
to patch before someone figures how to modify the exploit to get it
to work on 2.4. The issue only affects systems with untrusted local
users. For those who don't have time to revalidate and upgrade, just
set /proc/sys/vm/mmap_min_addr to 4096 or more, as it is enough to
stop the exploit, and is recommended anyway, unless you know that it
breaks one very old legacy application.

A few minor build issues have also been fixed BTW.

The patch and changelog will appear soon at the following locations:
