Buffer overflow in the mac_partition function in
fs/partitions/mac.c in the Linux kernel before 188.8.131.52 allows
local users to cause a denial of service (panic) or possibly have
unspecified other impact via a malformed Mac OS partition table.
The fix for this has hit everything since Hardy already either via
mainline or stable updates. Following this email is a patch for hardy
this is a minor backport of the upstream commit.
Proposing for Hardy.
