   An update that solves one vulnerability and has 8 fixes is
   now available.


   This update for drm provides the following fixes:

   This security issue was fixed:

   - CVE-2017-10810: Memory leak in the virtio_gpu_object_create function in
     drivers/gpu/drm/virtio/virtgpu_object.c allowed attackers to cause a
     denial of service (memory consumption) by triggering
     object-initialization failures (bnc#1047277)

   These non-security issues were fixed:

   - Backport upstream 4.9.x stable fixes up to 4.9.81 (bsc#1041744).
   - Fixed crash at suspend/resume on old Intel chipsets (bsc#1047729,
   - Fixed large topology support for vmwgfx (bsc#1048155)
   - Workaround for BXT aperture vs GTT chip bug (bsc#1046821)
   - Limit the supplements for the default hardware support to only Intel
     Skylake / Kabylake and AMDGPU (bsc#1077885) 4.9.x i915 seems more buggy
     than expected for old chipsets.
   - Conditionally build aarch64 as well (bsc#1066175)
   - Build host1x module (taken from the kernel-source) as well for avoiding
     the unneeded dependency on kernel-default-extra on ARM64 (bsc#1066175)
   - Enable AMDGPU CIK and SI (bsc#1066175):
   - Add missing hisilicon hibmc driver (bsc#1066175):
   - Add si_support and cik_support options to radeon and amdgpu
   - Update Module.supported and apply it properly; following SLE12-SP3
     kernel status
   - Backport the upstream DP-MST fixes, addressing a hang at S3 resume
