   The following security issues were fixed:

   - CVE-2020-29368: Fixed an issue in copy-on-write implementation which

     in a THP mapcount check (bsc#1179664).
   - Fixed an issue where NFS client filesystems got unmounted on fail-over
   - CVE-2021-3347: Fixed a use-after-free in the PI futexes during fault
     handling, allowing local users to execute code in the kernel
   - CVE-2020-27786: Fixed a potential user after free which could have led
     to memory corruption or privilege escalation (bsc#1179616).
   - CVE-2020-28374: Fixed insufficient identifier checking in the LIO SCSI
     target code which could have been used by remote attackers to read or
     write files via directory traversal in an XCOPY request (bsc#1178684).
   - CVE-2021-0342: Fixed a potential memory corruption due to a use after
     free which could have led to local escalation of privilege with System
