Summary     : The Linux kernel (the core of the Linux operating system)
Description :
The kernel package contains the Linux kernel (vmlinuz), the core of your
Fedora Core Linux operating system.  The kernel handles the basic functions
of the operating system:  memory allocation, process allocation, device
input and output, etc.

Update Information:

Numerous problems referencing userspace memory were identified in several
device drivers by Al Viro using the sparse tool.  The Common Vulnerabilities
and Exposures project ( assigned the name CAN-2004-0495 to this issue.

A problem was found where userspace code could execute certain floating
point instructions from signal handlers which would cause the kernel
to lock up.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (
assigned the name CAN-2004-0554 to this issue.

Previous kernels contained a patch against the framebuffer ioctl
code which turned out to be unnecessary. This has been dropped
in this update.

A memory leak in the E1000 network card driver has been fixed.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project ( assigned
the name CAN-2004-0535 to this issue.

Previously, inappropriate permissions were set on /proc/scsi/qla2300/HbaApiNode
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project ( assigned
the name CAN-2004-0587 to this issue.

Support for systems with more than 4GB of memory was previously unavailable.
The 686 SMP kernel now supports this configuration. (Bugzilla #122960)
Support for SMP on 586's was also previously not included.
This has also been rectified. (Bugzilla #111871)
