Contributed by jj on from the p-p-p-patch-my-kernel-over-ethernet dept.
Patches are now available for 5.5 and 5.6 which fix two kernel errata.
5.5 errata 16 and 5.6 errata 10: Several bugs were fixed that allowed a crash from remote when an active pipex session exists.
5.5 errata 17 and 5.6 errata 11: An incorrect memcpy call would result in corrupted MAC addresses when using PPPOE.
Users who don't use don't use PPPOE or PIPEX are not affected, but can still apply the patches.
