I got no response on the Ubuntu-devel-discuss list about this very
important fix.

Anyone here know any progress oriented info for this issue?

See links below about how to  howto compile the ubuntu linux kernel.

This flaw is a terrible one, & a big black eye for Ubuntu/Linux.

Getting this fix implemented in the current (K)Ubuntu 10.4 would really
be great progress.  :)

What are the plans for implementing this in the current kernel?

I encourage the Ub kernel devs to implement this ASAP.

"How to compile a kernel on Ubuntu 10.04
The Ubuntu wiki does provide the necessary documentation to allow users
to build their own Linux kernel but in a rather disorganised way.
They should restructure it and provide clear detailed steps for each
release and not the current mish-mash of old and new.
How about giving each release their own dedicated wiki page?
Original Ubuntu wiki: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile
First steps
Install the required tools and packages.
