Updated kernel packages fix security vulnerabilities

This kernel update is based on upstream 5.15.65 and fixes at least the
following security issues:

An out-of-bounds memory read flaw was found in the Linux kernel's BPF
subsystem in how a user calls the bpf_tail_call function with a key
larger than the max_entries of the map. This flaw allows a local user
to gain unauthorized access to data (CVE-2022-2905).

A race condition was found in the Linux kernel's IP framework for
transforming packets (XFRM subsystem) when multiple calls to
xfrm_probe_algs occurred simultaneously. This flaw could allow a local
attacker to potentially trigger an out-of-bounds write or leak kernel
heap memory by performing an out-of-bounds read and copying it into a
socket (CVE-2022-3028).

There exists a use-after-free in io_uring in the Linux kernel.
Signalfd_poll() and binder_poll() use a waitqueue whose lifetime is the
current task. It will send a POLLFREE notification to all waiters before
the queue is freed. Unfortunately, the io_uring poll doesn't handle
POLLFREE. This allows a use-after-free to occur if a signalfd or binder
fd is polled with io_uring poll, and the waitqueue gets freed

An issue was discovered in net/netfilter/nf_tables_api.c in the kernel
before 5.19.6. A denial of service can occur upon binding to an already
bound chain (CVE-2022-39190).

mm/rmap.c in the Linux kernel before 5.19.7 has a use-after-free related
to leaf anon_vma double reuse (CVE-2022-42703).

Other fixes in this update:
- A fix for an issue causing excessive logging (mga#30779) due to an
  uppstream change that was included in the 5.15.62 kernel update released
  as MGASA-2022-0305.
- bpf, cgroup: Fix kernel BUG in purge_effective_progs
- bpf: Restrict bpf_sys_bpf to CAP_PERFMON
- Revert "xhci: turn off port power in shutdown" as it causes some systems
  to hang on shutdown.

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