   This update for the Linux Kernel 4.12.14-94_41 fixes several issues.

   The following security issues were fixed:

   - CVE-2019-3846: A flaw that allowed an attacker to corrupt memory and
     possibly escalate privileges was found in the mwifiex kernel module
     while connecting to a malicious wireless network (bsc#1136446).
   - CVE-2019-11477: A sequence of SACKs may have been crafted by a remote
     attacker such that one can trigger an integer overflow, leading to a
     kernel panic. (bsc#1137586).
   - CVE-2019-11478: It was possible to send a crafted sequence of SACKs
     which would fragment the TCP retransmission queue. A remote attacker may
     have been able to further exploit the fragmented queue to cause an
     expensive linked-list walk for subsequent SACKs received for that same
     TCP connection. (bsc#1137586)
   - CVE-2019-11487: The Linux kernel allowed page->_refcount reference count
     overflow, with resultant use-after-free issues, if about 140 GiB of RAM
     exists. This is related to fs/fuse/dev.c, fs/pipe.c, fs/splice.c,
     include/linux/mm.h, include/linux/pipe_fs_i.h, kernel/trace/trace.c,
     mm/gup.c, and mm/hugetlb.c. It can occur with FUSE requests
   - CVE-2019-11085: Insufficient input validation in Kernel Mode Driver in
     Intel(R) i915 Graphics may allowed an authenticated user to potentially
     enable escalation of privilege via local access (bsc#1135280).
