Here's a similar entry in the kernel changelog:
  * [SECURITY]: Fix a typo with the overtemp code in the g5 thermal driver can
    cause abrupt shutdowns on some machines. Theoretically a user could perform
    a local DoS abusing the CPU to the point where the machine will shutdown:
    - Add patch drivers-macintosh-thermpm72_CVE-2005-XXXX.dpatch.

Not much difference from our situation, except that you don't need to heat up
the CPU to trigger this bug, just closing the lid is enough.
I still don't get it - why can't a patch that is ready be incorporated into your
kernel along with (other) security patches?..
