Updated kernel-tmb packages fixes bugs and a tcp regression

Publication date: 02 Jul 2019
Type: bugfix
Affected Mageia releases : 6


This kernel-tmb update is based on the upstream 4.14.131 and fixes various
bugs like use-after-free, null-pointer dereferences and so on.

It also adds block level fixes for a potential silent data corruption when
using O_DIRECT.

It also fixes a regression in the network tcp stack caused by the security
fixes added in the MGASA-2019-0195 update, causing applications like steam
to stop working.

For other uptstream fixes in this update, see the referenced changelogs.
