If you can reduce it to a series of steps that is easy to reproduce, the
best place by far would to be to open a Launchpad bug report against
"linux". I recommend using the "ubuntu-bug linux" command as that will
attach various commonly-requested files, etc.
The Ubuntu Kernel team would be responsible for trying to get a fix in for
Ubuntu Security Team
